Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – undesired messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be tricked. Because of this, plenty of email service providers make use of spam filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all inbound email messages and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how often they are referred to, what website a specific hyperlink redirects to, what outgoing mail server the email is sent from, etc. Some providers also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about unasked-for messages, to ensure that their customers won’t get any message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers employ one of the very best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every hosting package, so in case you host your domains with us, you can opt for one of the five levels of safety that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the content of each and every message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve selected. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can choose if the messages that the anti-spam filter classifies as spam should be erased or delivered to another email account where you can read them later, so as to prevent deleting a genuine email message. Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also astonishingly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted under the account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all unwanted messages away from your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account at any time. You can also adjust the safety level with a couple of clicks of the mouse if spam emails still appear in your inbox or the filter begins removing legitimate email messages. As you can choose if the spam should be deleted momentarily or re-sent to another email address, you can create, for instance, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you won’t omit an email that you require. The email messages that the anti-spam filter allows to proceed will still be delivered to your mailbox.
