A spam filter is an application that prevents undesirable messages from reaching a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, etc. Because of this, it is quite important to enable filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Web hosting companies often use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Hosting
Our hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with every shared hosting package, so in case you host your domain names 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 only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the content of each and every message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve picked. Every email account can have a different level and you can choose whether the email messages that the anti-spam filter considers as spam should be erased or delivered to another email account where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate email. Switching to some other level or disabling the spam protection is also stunningly easy.
