Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be swindled. That’s why, plenty of email providers resort to email filters, which are software applications that keep track of all incoming emails and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email includes and how often they are referred to, what website a given link leads to, what outgoing server the email message comes from, etc. Certain hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date info about undesirable emails, to make sure that their customers will not receive any email message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting
servers employ one of the very best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each web hosting plan, so if you host your domains with us, you can pick one of the 5 levels of safety that the filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the content of each email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have opted for. Every email account can have a different level and you can choose whether the messages that the filter classifies as spam should be deleted or re-sent to a separate email address where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing a genuine email. Changing the level or deactivating the protection is also stunningly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
, you won’t need to worry about junk email messages filling up your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin filter that we provide with every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any email account with a couple of clicks and you can select any of the five levels of security – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, legitimate email messages get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be re-sent to a special mailbox like firstname.lastname@example.org and not to be erased. In this way, you can check them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t missed an authentic message.
