Most emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. That’s the reason why plenty of mail service providers use email filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound email messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how many times they’re cited, what website a certain hyperlink opens, what outbound email server the email is sent from, etc. Certain web hosts also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about undesired messages, to ensure that their customers will not receive any email message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you order a shared hosting package from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few mouse clicks, you can select between five separate safety levels. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header and the body of each and every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom filters and either get rid of undesired emails or forward them to a third-party email address such as where you can check them once more at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you reach the decision to use the mail service that is offered with our semi-dedicated plans, you can keep all unwanted email messages away from your inbox by activating the five-level anti-spam protection that we provide with each plan. This can be achieved via the full-featured Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we rely on the powerful SpamAssassin filter to make certain that we offer the very best possible security for our clients. You can have a different protection level for each mailbox and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased or delivered to some other mailbox where you can review them later in order to make sure that you will not omit authentic messages. Switching to a different protection level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also easy and requires several mouse clicks.
