Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. undesired messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may get duped. This is the reason why numerous mail service providers use spam filters, which are applications that keep track of all incoming emails and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how many times they’re mentioned, what web site a specific hyperlink points to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email comes from, etc. Some companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unwanted email messages, to make certain that their customers won’t get any email message in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
If you order a web hosting package from us and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can select between five separate levels of protection. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of every email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom filters and either delete unasked-for messages or send them to a 3rd-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them once again at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under your account, you will be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unwanted emails out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you want. You can also fine-tune the protection level with several clicks if unsolicited bulk messages still appear in your inbox or the filter begins deleting legitimate email messages. Since you can choose whether the spam should be erased right away or forwarded to a separate email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you will not miss a message that you need. The emails that the spam filter allows to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
