Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may get duped. That is why, plenty of mail service providers use email filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they’re mentioned, what website a particular link redirects to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email message is sent from, and so on. Certain web hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unrequested messages, to make certain that their clients will not get any message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Hosting
The security of any email account that you create in a hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to each and every email depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of certain words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may omit a genuine message, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a specific sender to a separate mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer require a spam filter for a particular mailbox, you can disable it with no more than a few mouse clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages deliver top-notch anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which sorts all inbound emails based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between 5 different levels of safety – from very high to very low. If you still get spam emails, you can raise the level, or if authentic email messages are blocked as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be forwarded to a designated email address where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that important messages won’t disappear.
