Find out more on spam filters - exactly what they are, the way they work and how to create one.
Most of the emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. undesired messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may be ripped off. This is the reason why a lot of email providers rely on email filters, which are apps that keep track of all incoming email messages and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how many times they’re referred to, what web site a given link points to, what outgoing SMTP server the email comes from, and so on. Certain web hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unasked-for emails, to make certain that their customers won’t receive any message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
The security of any mailbox that you create under a shared web hosting
account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to each email message in accordance with different parameters, such as the frequency of certain words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss a legitimate email message, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a given sender to another mailbox. If you decide that you no longer want a spam filter for a specific mailbox, you can deactivate it with no more than a couple of clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts deliver top-level anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between 5 different levels of safety – from very high to very low. If you continue to get junk email messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic email messages are classified as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered email messages should be erased straight away or if they should be re-sent to a chosen email account where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that the messages that you need won’t disappear.
