Most email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may get duped. For this reason, many email service providers use email filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message contains and how often they’re referred to, what site a given hyperlink opens, what SMTP mail server the message comes from, etc. Some web hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unwelcome messages, to make certain that their customers will not receive any email message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
The protection of any mailbox that you create under a cloud hosting
account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 protection levels based on the spam score given to each email depending on various parameters, such as the recurrence of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may miss a legitimate message, you can mix the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a certain sender to some other mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer require an email filter for a specific email account, you can disable it with just several mouse clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service
, you won’t have to worry about junk emails filling up your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with several clicks and you can select one of the 5 protection levels – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, authentic emails get blocked, or if junk emails go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be forwarded to a special email account such as firstname.lastname@example.org and not to be deleted. In this way, you can check them from time to time to ensure that you haven’t omitted a legitimate message.
