Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may get ripped off. That’s why, a lot of email providers rely on spam filters, which are software apps that monitor all incoming email messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message includes and how many times they are cited, what site a specific link redirects to, what outbound SMTP mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain web hosts also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about unsolicited messages, to ensure that their clients won’t receive any email in their inbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
The safety of any mailbox that you set up under a shared web hosting
account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to every email in accordance with various criteria, such as the recurrence of given words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may miss an authentic email message, you can mix the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a particular sender to a different email address. If you reach the decision that you no longer want a spam filter for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with just a few clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use one of our semi-dedicated plans
, you will not have to worry about junk messages filling up your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated account. Our in-house created Hepsia 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 5 security levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, authentic email messages get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk emails go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be re-sent to a special mailbox such as firstname.lastname@example.org and not to be deleted. In this way, you can go through them every now and then to make sure that you have not missed an authentic email.
