Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may get conned. That is the reason why lots of email service providers rely on email filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how often they’re mentioned, what site a particular link opens, what outgoing SMTP email server the email is sent from, etc. Certain hosting companies also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about undesired messages, to ensure that their customers will not get any email in their inbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
If you decide to host your domains with our company and you select any of our Linux cloud web hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any email address that you set up. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between five separate levels of security. If you continue to receive spam email messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate email messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam service is ensured by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk skipping a genuine email message that may be flagged as spam due to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and redirect the emails to some other email account where you can read them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you will be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome emails away from your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox at any moment. You can also tweak the level of protection with several mouse clicks in case unsolicited bulk messages continue to enter your inbox or the email filter begins removing genuine email messages. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted momentarily or forwarded to a different email account, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you will not omit a message that you require. The email messages that the filter allows to go through will still appear in your mailbox.
