A spam filter is an application that blocks unwelcome email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, etc. Because of this, it’s really important to set up email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Hosting providers often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering better and easier without affecting genuine emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you decide to host your domain names with us and you choose any of our cloud plans, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any email account that you set up. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 separate levels of protection. In case you continue to get spam emails or the filters start preventing genuine emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam solution is ensured by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting a genuine message that may be regarded as spam owing to its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to another mailbox where you can review them at a later time.
