Find out more about spam filters - what they are, the way they work and how to set up one.
Most of the emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be duped. That’s the reason why numerous mail service providers rely on email filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email includes and how many times they’re mentioned, what site a particular hyperlink points to, what outgoing mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain providers also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unrequested emails, to make certain that their clients won’t get any email message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
The protection of any mailbox that you create under a shared website hosting
account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to every email message depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of certain words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may miss a legitimate message, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a certain sender to some other email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with only several mouse clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server
package from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesirable messages out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any time. You can also tweak the safety level with a few mouse clicks if spam email messages continue to appear in your inbox or the spam filter begins erasing legitimate email messages. As you can choose if the spam should be erased straight away or forwarded to some other email address, you can create firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, and view all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you will not omit an email that you require. The emails that the email filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
