Most of the email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. undesired messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. Because of this, a lot of email service providers make use of email filters, which are software applications that monitor all incoming emails and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how many times they’re mentioned, what web site a particular hyperlink redirects to, what SMTP mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about unrequested email messages, to make certain that their clients won’t receive any message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
Our web hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with every cloud hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can select one of the 5 levels of security that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header and the body of each email, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have chosen. Every email account can have a different level and you can select whether the emails that the spam filter flags as spam should be deleted or re-sent to another email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting an authentic email. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also incredibly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you use one of our semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t have to worry about spam messages clogging your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with a couple of mouse clicks and you can pick any of the 5 safety levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, legitimate messages get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be re-sent to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can check them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t missed an authentic email.
