A spam filter is a software application that obstructs undesirable messages from reaching a given mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s pretty important to set up filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being scammed somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing server. Web hosts often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting plan from our company and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a few mouse clicks, you can select between 5 separate safety levels. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the best and most famous filters out there called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each and every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email message or permits it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to configure custom filters and either erase undesired emails or redirect them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once again later.
