Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may get conned. This is the reason why numerous email service providers make use of spam filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all inbound email messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how many times they’re cited, what web site a specific link opens, what outbound mail server the email comes from, and so on. Certain providers also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unwanted emails, to ensure that their clients won’t receive any email in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Hosting
The protection of any mailbox that you create in a hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to every message in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, etc. If you keep getting spam messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may omit a legitimate email message, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a particular sender to a separate email address. If you decide that you no longer want a spam filter for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with only a few clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unsolicited email messages out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also fine-tune the level of safety with a couple of clicks of the mouse if junk email messages still reach your inbox or the spam filter starts removing authentic email messages. As you can choose if the spam should be erased right away or re-sent to a separate email account, you can set up, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you will not omit an email message that you require. The emails that the spam filter allows to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
