Find out about spam filters - just what they are, the way they work and the way to create one.
A spam filter is a software application that prevents undesired email messages from reaching a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s very important to enable filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound mail server. Web hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you choose any of our shared website hosting, you’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any mailbox that you set up. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 separate security levels. If you still receive junk email messages or the filters start preventing genuine messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam service is ensured by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk missing a legitimate email that may be flagged as spam due to its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to another email account where you can review them at a later point in time.
