A spam filter is an app that stops unsolicited messages from entering a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s quite important to use filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to provide better safety – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Hosting providers often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting servers use one of the very best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the 5 levels of safety that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header and the body of every email message, gives it a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have selected. Each email account can have a different setting and you can select whether the email messages that the filter reports as spam should be deleted or delivered to a different email account where you can check them at a later time, so as to prevent erasing a genuine email message. Switching to another level or disabling the spam protection is also extremely easy.
