Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may be conned. Because of this, plenty of mail service providers use email filters, which are software apps that keep track of all incoming email messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how many times they’re mentioned, what web site a specific link redirects to, what email server the email is sent from, and so on. Some web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unasked-for email messages, to make certain that their customers will not receive any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
If you order a shared website hosting
plan from our company and if you use our mail services, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can pick between 5 separate security levels. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most famous spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email or permits it to enter your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to activate custom email filters and either delete unwanted messages or forward them to a third-party email address such as email@example.com where you can examine them again at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans
, you won’t need to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages stuffing your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a few mouse clicks and you can choose any of the five security levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for example, authentic emails get blocked, or if junk emails go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be re-sent to a special email account such as firstname.lastname@example.org and not to be erased. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t missed out on a legitimate email.
