Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may be duped. This is the reason why plenty of email providers resort to email filters, which are apps that keep track of all incoming emails and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they are mentioned, what site a particular link redirects to, what server the email comes from, etc. Some web hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unsolicited messages, to make certain that their clients won’t receive any email message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
Our website hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every cloud hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the 5 levels of safety that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the body of each and every email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you’ve opted for. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can choose whether the messages that the filter reports as spam should be erased or delivered to another email address where you can read them at a later time, so as to prevent erasing a genuine email. Switching to some other level or disabling the spam protection is also surprisingly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with top-class anti-spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which sorts all inbound messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can choose between 5 different levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you continue to receive junk email messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate emails are blocked as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be deleted straight away or if they should be forwarded to a chosen mailbox where you can check them at a later time, so as to ensure that important messages won’t disappear.
