An email filter is an app that stops unwanted emails from reaching a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is really important to use email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to ensure better protection – particular words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s mail server. Hosting companies frequently use the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

The safety of any email account that you set up in a shared website hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 security levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every email in accordance with various parameters, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam email messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may skip a genuine message, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a certain sender to a different mailbox. In case you reach the decision that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a particular email account, you can disable it with only a few clicks.
