Most email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – undesired messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may get tricked. That is why, many email providers use email filters, which are apps that keep track of all incoming emails and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email consists of and how often they’re cited, what website a specific hyperlink points to, what outgoing mail server the email comes from, and so on. Some hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about undesired emails, to make certain that their clients won’t receive any email message in their inbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
If you order a web hosting package from us and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a few mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 separate protection levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of each and every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to activate custom email filters and either delete unsolicited emails or forward them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once again afterwards.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you will be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome email messages away from your inbox. This service 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 change the level of safety with several clicks in case unsolicited bulk emails continue to reach your mailbox or the filter starts removing genuine emails. As you can choose if the spam should be deleted immediately or redirected to a separate email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you won’t miss an email that you require. The messages that the filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
