An email filter is a software application that obstructs undesired emails from entering a particular inbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. That is why, it’s quite important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being duped somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s mail server. Web hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you create in a shared hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 protection levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every email depending on different criteria, such as the frequency of specific words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may miss a legitimate email, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a particular sender to a different email address. In case you decide that you no longer require an email filter for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with only a few clicks.
