Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, what they do and how to enable them.
A spam filter is a software app that stops unasked-for email messages from entering a given inbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is quite important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being tricked in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine email messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

packages deliver excellent spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which rates all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of particular keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between 5 different protection levels – from very low to very high.
