Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unwelcome 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 personal computer, not to mention that you may be conned. This is the reason why a lot of mail service providers resort to spam filters, which are software applications that keep track of all inbound email messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how many times they are cited, what website a given hyperlink opens, what SMTP email server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain providers also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unwanted messages, to make sure that their clients won’t receive any message in their inbox that is 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 ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 security levels based on the spam score given to each and every email depending on different parameters, such as the recurrence of given words, the sender, etc. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may skip an authentic message, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a certain sender to some other mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer need an email filter for a specific mailbox, you can disable it with only a few clicks.
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’ll be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all undesirable email messages out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you want. You can also change the protection level with a couple of clicks in case unsolicited bulk emails continue to enter your inbox or the filter starts deleting legitimate messages. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted right away or forwarded to some other mailbox, you can create, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you will not omit an email that you need. The email messages that the email filter allows to proceed will still appear in your mailbox.
