A spam filter is a software app that impedes undesired email messages from reaching a given inbox. An immense percentage of the email communication around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. That is why, it’s pretty important to set up filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s mail server. Web hosting providers frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering better and easier without affecting authentic messages, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the 5 levels of security that the filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the content of each and every email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have chosen. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select if the emails that the filter labels as spam should be deleted or re-sent to a different email account where you can review them at a later time, so as to prevent erasing a genuine email message. Switching to some other level or disabling the spam protection is also rather easy.
