Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. Because of this, plenty of email service providers resort to email filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email consists of and how often they are cited, what site a particular link leads to, what outgoing email server the message comes from, etc. Certain web hosts also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unwanted messages, to make certain that their customers will not get any email message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
If you get a cloud website hosting
plan from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than several clicks of the mouse, you can select between five separate security levels. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most popular email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email or permits it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to configure custom email filters and either erase unwelcome emails or redirect them to a 3rd-party email address such as email@example.com where you can check them again later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans offer excellent anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which ranks all incoming email messages based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any mailbox through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five separate levels of security – from very low to very high. If you still get spam emails, you can increase the level, or if genuine emails are mistaken for spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased immediately or if they should be re-sent to a designated email account where you can view them at a later time, so as to ensure that important email messages won’t get lost.
