An email filter is a software app that stops undesired emails from entering a particular mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, and so on. This is why, it is really important to enable filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being ripped off in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosts often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every hosting package, so in case you host your domains with us, you can opt for one of the five security levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the body of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have picked. Each email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the emails that the filter reports as spam should be erased or redirected to a different mailbox where you can review them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the spam protection is also amazingly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Switching to a different level of protection or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also easy and requires a couple of clicks of the mouse.
