Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – undesirable messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may get scammed. That is the reason why lots of email providers resort to spam filters, which are software applications that keep track of all inbound emails and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message includes and how often they are referred to, what website a specific link leads to, what SMTP email server the email message is sent from, and so on. Some hosting companies also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unwelcome email messages, to make sure that their clients will not receive any email in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
If you order a website hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to set up spam filtering 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 choose between five different levels of protection. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each email that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom spam filters and either delete undesirable emails or forward them to a 3rd-party address such as where you can view them once more after that.
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 the account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited messages away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also fine-tune the security level with a couple of clicks of the mouse if unsolicited bulk emails continue to enter your inbox or the filter starts deleting authentic emails. As you can select if the spam should be erased instantly or delivered to a separate email address, you can set up, for example, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t omit an email that you require. The email messages that the spam filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
