An email filter is an app that prevents unasked-for email messages from entering a given inbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s extremely important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being duped somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound mail server. Hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine email messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you set up under a shared hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five levels of protection based on the spam score given to each message depending on various criteria, such as the frequency of specific words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss an authentic message, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a specific sender to a separate mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer require an email filter for a specific email account, you can disable it with only a couple of mouse clicks.
