Most of the email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. Because of this, lots of email service providers use spam filters, which are applications that keep track of all inbound email messages and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email includes and how often they’re cited, what site a certain link redirects to, what mail server the email message is sent from, and so on. Some hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unsolicited email messages, to make certain that their clients will not receive any email message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
The safety of any mailbox that you set up in a shared hosting
account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 protection levels based on the spam score given to every message depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip a legitimate email, you can mix the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a specific sender to another email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer need a spam filter for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with only several clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages
, you will not need to worry about spam email messages clogging your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with several mouse clicks and you can choose one of the five safety levels – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, legitimate emails get blocked, or if junk messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be delivered to a special email account like firstname.lastname@example.org and not to be deleted. In this way, you can check them from time to time to make certain that you have not missed out on a legitimate email message.
