Most email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – undesirable messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may be swindled. That’s the reason why a lot of email providers use spam filters, which are apps that keep track of all incoming email messages and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they’re cited, what web site a specific hyperlink redirects to, what outgoing SMTP email server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain hosting providers also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about undesired email messages, to ensure that their clients will not receive any email in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
If you get a website hosting
package from us and if you use our email services, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than several clicks of the mouse, you can select between five different safety levels. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of every email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either erase unwanted email messages or redirect them to a third-party address like email@example.com where you can view them once more later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans
, you won’t need to worry about spam messages cramming your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks of the mouse and you can select one of the five levels of protection – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, genuine email messages get filtered, or if junk messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be redirected to a special email account such as firstname.lastname@example.org and not to be erased. In this way, you can check them from time to time to make certain that you have not missed out on a legitimate email.
