An email filter is a software app that stops unsolicited emails from entering a given inbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s pretty important to enable filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP server. Hosting companies frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic emails, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers use one of the best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every cloud hosting plan, so if you host your domains with us, you can opt for one of the five security levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the content of each message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have picked. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the anti-spam filter classifies as spam should be erased or redirected to another mailbox where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing an authentic message. Changing the level or deactivating the protection is also remarkably easy.
