Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may get conned. This is why, numerous email service providers resort to spam filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how often they are mentioned, what web site a specific link points to, what outbound mail server the email message comes from, etc. Certain web hosting providers also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about undesired email messages, to make certain that their customers will not get any email message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting
servers rely on one of the very best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each web hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can pick one of the five levels of security that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with just two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the content of each and every message, gives it a spam score and then continues based on the level that you’ve chosen. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the emails that the spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or redirected to a different email address where you can check them at a later time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email message. Changing the level or deactivating the spam protection is also unbelievably easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
, you will not have to worry about junk emails filling up your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any email account with a couple of mouse clicks and you can select any of the 5 levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, legitimate emails get filtered, or if spam email messages go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be forwarded to a special mailbox like email@example.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can examine them from time to time to ensure that you have not missed out on a genuine email message.
