Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – undesired messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be conned. That is why, many email service providers resort to email filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound emails and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how often they’re mentioned, what web site a specific link redirects to, what SMTP mail server the email comes from, and so on. Some providers also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about unwelcome emails, to make sure that their customers will not get any email in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
The security of any mailbox that you create in a shared web hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five security levels based on the spam score given to every message depending on various criteria, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk emails, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may miss a genuine message, you can mix the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to some other mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer require an email filter for a particular email account, you can disable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers, you won’t have to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages occupying your mailboxes every now and then, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with a few mouse clicks and you can choose one of the 5 levels of security – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, legitimate emails get blocked, or if junk emails go through and appear in your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be re-sent to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t omitted a genuine email message.
