A spam filter is a software app that hinders undesirable messages from reaching a given mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s rather important to use email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering better and easier without affecting authentic email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of security based on the spam score given to each and every email message depending on different parameters, such as the recurrence of particular words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may skip a legitimate email, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a given sender to a separate mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer want a spam filter for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with no more than a couple of clicks.
