Most of the email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be conned. For this reason, numerous mail service providers make use of spam filters, which are software apps that monitor all incoming emails and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message contains and how many times they’re referred to, what web site a given hyperlink leads to, what outgoing server the message is sent from, etc. Some companies also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unwanted emails, to ensure that their clients won’t get any message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers rely on one of the best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with every hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can opt for one of the 5 protection levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the body of each email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have opted for. Every email account can have a different setting and you can select whether the messages that the filter flags as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a different email account where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate email message. Switching to another level or deactivating the spam protection is also pretty easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you will be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all undesirable email messages out of your inbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account at any time. You can also change the level of security with several clicks of the mouse in case unsolicited bulk email messages continue to appear in your mailbox or the anti-spam filter begins erasing authentic messages. Since you can choose if the spam should be deleted instantly or re-sent to another mailbox, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t miss a message that you need. The messages that the filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
