A spam filter is a software application that obstructs undesired messages from entering a given mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, forged bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s extremely important to set up email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Web hosting companies frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine email messages, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
If you order a cloud website hosting plan from us and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks, you can choose between five separate safety levels. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of each and every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific email message or allows it to reach your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to set up custom filters and either erase unwelcome messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can check them once more afterwards.
