Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. This is why, lots of email service providers resort to spam filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound email messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message contains and how often they are mentioned, what website a certain link points to, what outbound SMTP email server the message is sent from, and so on. Certain hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unwelcome email messages, to ensure that their customers won’t get any message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Hosting
If you get a hosting plan from us and if you use our mail services, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a few mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 different levels of safety. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most famous spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header field and the body of each and every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to activate custom spam filters and either eliminate unwanted emails or send them to a 3rd-party email address like where you can check them once again afterwards.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer first-class spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which rates all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of specific keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five different security levels – from very high to very low. If you still receive spam, you can raise the level, or if genuine messages are classified as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted straight away or if they should be forwarded to a designated mailbox where you can check them at a later time, so as to ensure that the messages that you need won’t disappear.
