A spam filter is a software application that stops unsolicited messages from entering a given mailbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. This is why, it is quite important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to ensure better safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic emails, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every shared web hosting package, so in case you host your domains with us, you can opt for one of the 5 safety levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header and the content of every message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have selected. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the emails that the spam filter classifies as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a separate email account where you can view them later, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email. Switching to another level or deactivating the protection is also pretty easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Changing the protection level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also easy and takes several clicks of the mouse.
