Most of the email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may be tricked. That is why, many mail service providers use spam filters, which are applications that monitor all incoming messages and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how many times they’re mentioned, what web site a certain hyperlink leads to, what outbound SMTP server the email comes from, and so on. Some providers also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unsolicited emails, to ensure that their clients will not receive any message in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
Our web hosting
servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each cloud hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the five security levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header and the body of each and every email, gives it a spam score and then continues according to the level that you’ve picked. Every email account can have a different level and you can choose whether the email messages that the spam filter labels as spam should be erased or delivered to another mailbox where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing an authentic email message. Changing the level or disabling the protection is also quite easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you use one of our semi-dedicated servers
, you will not have to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages cramming your mailboxes all the time, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with a couple of clicks and you can choose any of the 5 protection levels – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, authentic emails get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be redirected to a special mailbox like email@example.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can go through them every now and then to ensure that you have not omitted a genuine email message.
