Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may be conned. Because of this, lots of email service providers make use of email filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound email messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how often they are referred to, what site a particular hyperlink opens, what mail server the email message is sent from, and so on. Some hosting companies also rely on 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 customers will not receive any message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
In case you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you select any of our Linux web hosting, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any mailbox that you set up. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five separate levels of security. In case you still get spam or the spam filters start preventing authentic messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam solution is ensured by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk missing an authentic email that may be considered spam due to its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and forward the emails to a different email address where you can view them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans offer top-level anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which ranks all inbound emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between 5 different levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive unsolicited bulk emails, you can raise the level, or if legitimate messages are labeled as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as two mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased instantly or if they should be delivered to a designated email address where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that valuable emails will not get lost.
