Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. undesirable messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may be duped. This is the reason why plenty of mail service providers use email filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how often they are cited, what web site a particular hyperlink redirects to, what outgoing mail server the email is sent from, etc. Certain hosting providers also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unwelcome email messages, to make certain that their clients will not get any email message 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’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a few mouse clicks, you can select between 5 separate safety levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually increase the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most popular spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of each and every message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific email message or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either get rid of undesirable messages or forward them to a 3rd-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once more afterwards.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you reach the decision to make use of the email service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you can keep all undesired emails out of your inbox by activating the five-level spam protection service that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated package. This can be done via the feature-stuffed Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we rely on the powerful SpamAssassin email filter to make certain that we offer the best possible security for our customers. You can have a different protection level for each email account and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased or delivered to a different mailbox where you can check them at a later time to ensure that you will not omit legitimate email messages. Switching to a different protection level or disabling the protection is also easy and requires a couple of mouse clicks.
