Most of the email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may be swindled. Because of this, numerous email service providers rely on email filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how often they’re cited, what website a particular hyperlink opens, what outbound SMTP email server the email is sent from, etc. Certain web hosts also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unasked-for email messages, to make sure that their customers will not receive any message in their inbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
If you get a website hosting
package from us and if you make use of our mail services, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few clicks, you can pick between five separate levels of safety. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each and every email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to create custom email filters and either delete unasked-for messages or re-send them to a third-party address such as firstname.lastname@example.org where you can read them again after that.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated servers
, you will not have to worry about spam messages clogging your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated account. Our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks and you can choose any of the 5 security levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, legitimate emails get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be redirected to a special email account like email@example.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can go through them every now and then to make certain that you haven’t missed out on a genuine email message.
