Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may be tricked. Because of this, many mail service providers resort to email filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all incoming email messages and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how often they’re mentioned, what website a certain link points to, what outbound mail server the email message comes from, and so on. Certain providers also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about unwelcome email messages, to make certain that their clients won’t receive any email in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you order a shared hosting plan from our company and if you use our email services, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few mouse clicks, you can pick between five separate security levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually boost the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to create custom spam filters and either delete unsolicited messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once more at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you decide to make use of the email service that is offered with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all unwelcome emails out of your inbox by enabling the 5-level anti-spam protection that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package. This can be accomplished through the feature-stuffed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter to ensure that we provide the very best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different protection level for each mailbox and you can select whether the filtered email messages should be deleted or delivered to some other email address where you can review them at a later point in time in order to ensure that you will not lose legitimate messages. Switching to another protection level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also easy and requires a few mouse clicks.
