Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. That’s the reason why a lot of email providers make use of spam filters, which are apps that monitor all incoming email messages and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email message contains and how often they’re mentioned, what web site a particular hyperlink leads to, what outbound email server the message comes from, and so on. Some companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unsolicited email messages, to ensure that their clients won’t get any message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
In case you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you select any of our shared web hosting plans, you will be able to set up spam filters for any email account that you create. With several clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between five separate security levels. If you continue to get spam or the filters start preventing legitimate emails from entering your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk skipping a legitimate email message that may be regarded as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the message and re-send the emails to a separate email account where you can examine them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages come with first-class anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which classifies all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five different levels of safety – from very low to very high. If you keep receiving spam email messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine emails are flagged as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased right away or if they should be redirected to a chosen mailbox where you can check them later, so as to make certain that important messages won’t get lost.
