Most of the email messages sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may get duped. This is why, a lot of mail service providers use spam filters, which are applications that keep track of all incoming emails and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they are referred to, what site a specific hyperlink opens, what SMTP server the message is sent from, etc. Some hosting providers also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unrequested emails, to make sure that their customers won’t receive any email message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can opt for one of the five security levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the body of each email, gives it a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have selected. Every email account can have a different setting and you can select whether the emails that the spam filter marks as spam should be erased or re-sent to another email address where you can examine them at a later time, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate email. Switching to another level or deactivating the protection is also remarkably easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesired email messages away from your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you like. You can also configure the protection level with several mouse clicks in case unsolicited bulk messages still appear in your mailbox or the email filter starts erasing genuine email messages. Since you can select if the spam should be erased immediately or redirected to a different email account, you can set up, for example, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you will not omit an email message that you need. The emails that the anti-spam filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
