Most email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may be tricked. That is the reason why numerous email service providers use email filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email message contains and how often they’re referred to, what website a certain hyperlink redirects to, what outbound mail server the message comes from, etc. Some hosting providers also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about unrequested messages, to make certain that their customers will not get any email message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Hosting
If you decide to host your domains with our company and you choose any of our hosting plans, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any email account that you set up. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five separate safety levels. If you continue to get spam or the spam filters start preventing legitimate emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection solution is guaranteed by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk missing a legitimate message that may be considered spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and re-send the emails to a separate mailbox where you can read them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use one of our semi-dedicated plans, you won’t have to worry about unsolicited bulk emails cramming your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin filter that we offer with each and every account. Our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with several clicks of the mouse and you can pick one of the 5 levels of security – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, legitimate messages get filtered, or if spam emails go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be delivered to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can go through them every now and then to make sure that you have not missed out on an authentic message.
