A spam filter is an app that prevents unsolicited messages from entering a given inbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications, and so on. This is why, it is rather important to use filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide better safety – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting companies often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting package from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than several clicks of the mouse, you can choose between 5 separate levels of protection. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of each message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom email filters and either eliminate unwelcome emails or send them to a 3rd-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can double-check them at a later point in time.
