Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may get swindled. That is why, lots of email providers resort to spam filters, which are applications that monitor all incoming email messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how many times they are cited, what site a specific link redirects to, what outbound SMTP email server the message comes from, etc. Some companies also make use of the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unasked-for emails, to make sure that their clients won’t get any email in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every cloud hosting package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the five levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the body of each and every email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve selected. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the email messages that the filter considers as spam should be deleted or delivered to a separate email account where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate email message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the protection is also truly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in the account, you will be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all unsolicited messages out of your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also tweak the safety level with a few mouse clicks in case unsolicited bulk email messages continue to reach your inbox or the anti-spam filter begins erasing authentic emails. As you can choose whether the spam should be erased instantly or re-sent to some other mailbox, you can create [email protected], for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you will not miss a message that you require. The messages that the anti-spam filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
