Most email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may get conned. That is why, a lot of mail service providers use email filters, which are software applications that keep track of all inbound emails and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message includes and how often they’re cited, what web site a particular link opens, what outbound email server the email comes from, and so on. Some providers also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about undesirable emails, to make sure that their customers will not get any email in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
If you order a web hosting
plan from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several clicks of the mouse, you can select between five separate protection levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular filters out there called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either erase unsolicited messages or send them to a third-party email address like firstname.lastname@example.org where you can examine them once more at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
, you will not have to worry about junk emails stuffing your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with a few mouse clicks and you can pick one of the 5 protection levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, legitimate email messages get blocked, or if spam messages go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be re-sent to a special mailbox like email@example.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to ensure that you haven’t omitted a genuine email message.
