Most emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. undesired messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may be conned. For this reason, plenty of email providers resort to email filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound emails and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how many times they are referred to, what website a specific hyperlink opens, what SMTP mail server the message is sent from, etc. Certain hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unsolicited emails, to ensure that their customers will not receive any email in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting servers rely on one of the best spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every cloud web hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the 5 levels of safety that the filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the body of each and every email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you’ve opted for. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the email messages that the anti-spam filter considers as spam should be deleted or re-sent to a separate email account where you can view them later, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the spam protection is also amazingly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you will not have to worry about unsolicited bulk messages cramming your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with several clicks of the mouse and you can select any of the five levels of security – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, genuine messages get blocked, or if spam emails go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be redirected to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t omitted a legitimate email.
