Learn more about spam filters - just what they are, the way they work and the ways to set up one.
A spam filter is an application that blocks undesired messages from entering a given inbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications, etc. That’s why, it is rather important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide better protection – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound email server. Hosting companies often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine email messages, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
The protection of any email account that you set up under a shared website hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five levels of security based on the spam score given to each and every email message in accordance with various parameters, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may skip a legitimate message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a given sender to a separate email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer want an email filter for a certain email account, you can disable it with just a couple of mouse clicks.
