Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get conned. Because of this, many mail service providers make use of spam filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all incoming email messages and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how often they are referred to, what website a particular link leads to, what outgoing mail server the email comes from, etc. Some web hosts also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unwelcome email messages, to make sure that their customers will not get any message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
Our website hosting servers rely on one of the very best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every cloud hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can pick one of the 5 levels of protection that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the body of each and every email message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have picked. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select if the email messages that the spam filter considers as spam should be erased or delivered to a separate email address where you can examine them later, so as to avoid erasing a genuine email message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the protection is also incredibly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome messages out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any time. You can also adjust the safety level with several mouse clicks in case unsolicited bulk emails still reach your inbox or the anti-spam filter starts removing genuine messages. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted momentarily or forwarded to a separate mailbox, you can create, for example, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you will not miss an email that you need. The email messages that the email filter allows to proceed will still appear in your inbox.
