Most of the emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. undesirable messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may get swindled. This is the reason why a lot of email providers make use of spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email contains and how many times they are referred to, what website a specific hyperlink leads to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email message is sent from, and so on. Certain hosting providers also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about unwelcome emails, to make sure that their clients will not get any email in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
The protection of any email account that you set up under a shared website hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to each and every email message depending on various criteria, such as the frequency of specific words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may skip a legitimate email, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a particular sender to a separate mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with just several clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with excellent spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which rates all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can choose between five separate safety levels – from very high to very low. If you keep getting spam messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate messages are classified as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased momentarily or if they should be re-sent to a chosen email account where you can examine them at a later time, so as to make certain that important messages won’t disappear.
