Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may get tricked. That’s why, plenty of mail service providers resort to email filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how often they are mentioned, what website a particular hyperlink leads to, what outgoing SMTP email server the email comes from, and so on. Certain web hosts also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unwanted email messages, to ensure that their clients will not receive any email message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting plan from us and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only several clicks of the mouse, you can choose between 5 separate security levels. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous filters out there called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each and every message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific email or permits it to enter your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to activate custom email filters and either get rid of undesirable messages or send them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can examine them once more after that.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts provide first-class spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which rates all inbound emails based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between 5 different levels – from very high to very low. If you still get spam email messages, you can raise the level, or if authentic email messages are blocked as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted right away or if they should be redirected to a chosen mailbox where you can examine them later, so as to ensure that important messages won’t get lost.
