Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get tricked. That is the reason why many email service providers make use of email filters, which are software applications that monitor all incoming messages and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how often they’re cited, what web site a particular link points to, what outgoing SMTP server the email message comes from, etc. Some web hosts also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about undesirable messages, to make certain that their clients won’t receive any email in their inbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each cloud hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the five safety levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the body of each email, calculates a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you have picked. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose if the emails that the spam filter considers as spam should be erased or redirected to a different email account where you can read them later, so as to avoid erasing an authentic email message. Switching to another level or disabling the protection is also remarkably easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you use one of our semi-dedicated packages, you will not have to worry about spam emails cramming your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with each account. Our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any email account with several clicks of the mouse and you can choose one of the 5 levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, legitimate messages get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk email messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be redirected to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can go through them every now and then to ensure that you have not missed an authentic email message.
