Most of the emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – undesirable messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get tricked. This is the reason why numerous mail service providers resort to spam filters, which are apps that keep track of all incoming email messages and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how many times they are cited, what website a particular link leads to, what outgoing SMTP email server the email is sent from, and so on. Some web hosting providers also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about undesired emails, to make sure that their clients won’t receive any email in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you get a shared hosting package from our company 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 hosting Control Panel. With just several clicks of the mouse, you can pick between five separate levels of protection. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each and every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to activate custom spam filters and either eliminate undesirable emails or send them to a third-party address like where you can view them once more afterwards.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with excellent anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which ranks all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any account via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between 5 different levels of security – from very high to very low. If you continue to get junk messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate messages are reported as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased straight away or if they should be redirected to a designated email account where you can view them at a later time, so as to make sure that valuable emails will not disappear.
