Most emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. undesired messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may get ripped off. That’s why, lots of email providers resort to spam filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how often they are mentioned, what site a particular hyperlink redirects to, what outbound SMTP mail server the email message is sent from, etc. Certain web hosts also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about unwanted messages, to make certain that their clients will not receive any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
If you order a cloud website hosting plan from us and if you make use of our mail services, you will be able to set up spam filters 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 pick between 5 separate security levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually boost the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines 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 message or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to create custom filters and either get rid of unwanted email messages or re-send them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once again after that.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans come with top-class spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which ranks all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of specific keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five different safety levels – from very high to very low. If you still receive unsolicited bulk emails, you can increase the level, or if genuine email messages are mistaken for spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased instantaneously or if they should be re-sent to a designated email account where you can view them at a later time, so as to make sure that important email messages won’t disappear.
