Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may get conned. This is the reason why plenty of email service providers rely on email filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound emails and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how many times they are cited, what site a given link redirects to, what outbound SMTP server the email message is sent from, and so on. Some web hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unwanted emails, to make certain that their customers will not get any email in their inbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
If you order a web hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can choose between 5 separate levels of protection. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous filters out there called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each and every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email message or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom filters and either delete unsolicited emails or forward them to a third-party email address such as where you can check them again after that.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages offer second-to-none spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all inbound messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five different safety levels – from very low to very high. If you continue to receive junk email messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate email messages are blocked as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as two mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased right away or if they should be redirected to a chosen email address where you can check them at a later time, so as to make sure that the messages that you need will not disappear.
