Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may get duped. Because of this, a lot of email service providers resort to spam filters, which are software apps that monitor all incoming messages and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how often they are referred to, what website a certain link redirects to, what outbound mail server the email message comes from, and so on. Certain web hosts also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unwanted emails, to make certain that their clients will not receive any message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
The protection of any email account that you create in a shared web hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 security levels based on the spam score given to each and every email message depending on different criteria, such as the frequency of certain words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip a legitimate message, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a certain sender to some other mailbox. In case you reach the decision that you no longer require a spam filter for a given email account, you can disable it with no more than a few clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you use one of our semi-dedicated servers, you will not have to worry about junk messages occupying your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with several clicks and you can pick any of the 5 security levels – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, legitimate messages get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk email messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be delivered to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to make certain that you have not omitted an authentic email message.
