Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. undesired messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be tricked. That’s why, a lot of mail service providers use email filters, which are apps that keep track of all incoming emails and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how often they are mentioned, what web site a particular link points to, what email server the email message comes from, and so on. Certain providers also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date information about undesired email messages, to ensure that their clients will not receive any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
If you get a cloud web hosting plan from us and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just several mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 different levels of security. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of each and every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email message or allows it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either eliminate unasked-for emails or send them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can examine them again later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers, you won’t have to worry about spam messages filling up your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with several clicks and you can choose one of the 5 levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for instance, authentic messages get filtered, or if junk email messages go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be re-sent to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can check them from time to time to make certain that you have not omitted a genuine message.
