An email filter is a software app that prevents unwelcome messages from entering a given mailbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, etc. That is why, it is extremely important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Hosting companies often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level till you stop getting spam.

It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given message or permits it to reach your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to create custom spam filters and either delete undesired email messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party email address such as where you can read them again at a later point in time.
