Most of the email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may be duped. This is the reason why a lot of email providers use spam filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email includes and how often they’re referred to, what site a certain hyperlink redirects to, what outbound SMTP mail server the email comes from, etc. Certain web hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unwelcome email messages, to make certain that their clients won’t receive any email message in their inbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers use one of the best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every cloud web hosting plan, so if you host your domains with us, you can pick one of the five levels of security that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the content of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have picked. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can choose if the emails that the spam filter marks as spam should be erased or delivered to another email address where you can read them later, so as to avoid deleting a genuine email message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also amazingly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted under your account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all unwanted messages away from your inbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox at any time. You can also alter the level of safety with a couple of clicks of the mouse if junk messages continue to reach your inbox or the email filter begins erasing legitimate email messages. Since you can select if the spam should be erased right away or forwarded to a different email address, you can create, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit a message that you require. The email messages that the email filter allows to go through will still appear in your inbox.
