A spam filter is a software app that blocks unwelcome emails from reaching a given inbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. That’s why, it is really important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being ripped off somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to provide better protection – specific 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 outgoing email server. Web hosting companies frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

With only a few clicks of the mouse, you can choose between five separate levels of security. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of each and every email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email or allows it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to configure custom filters and either eliminate undesirable messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can check them again at a later point in time.
