Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may be swindled. That’s the reason why lots of mail service providers make use of spam filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all inbound email messages and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they are cited, what site a specific link points to, what SMTP email server the email comes from, and so on. Certain companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about undesired email messages, to make certain that their customers won’t get any message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Hosting
If you order a hosting plan from us and if you use our mail services, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a few clicks of the mouse, you can choose between 5 different security levels. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most popular email filters available called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of every message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email or permits it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to create custom filters and either delete unasked-for emails or send them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can check them again afterwards.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted under the account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome messages out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also configure the level of safety with several mouse clicks if spam email messages still enter your mailbox or the filter begins removing genuine emails. As you can select if the spam should be deleted immediately or re-sent to some other email address, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t omit an email that you need. The messages that the anti-spam filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
