Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. For this reason, numerous mail service providers use spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email includes and how many times they are mentioned, what web site a specific hyperlink redirects to, what SMTP mail server the email comes from, and so on. Certain web hosts also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unwanted email messages, to make sure that their clients will not get any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers use one of the best spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each web hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the 5 levels of safety that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the content of every email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have opted for. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can choose if the emails that the anti-spam filter flags as spam should be erased or redirected to another email address where you can view them at a later time, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate email. Switching to some other level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also stunningly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome emails out of your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any moment. You can also configure the security level with a few mouse clicks in case spam emails still reach your inbox or the email filter begins erasing legitimate messages. As you can select whether the spam should be erased momentarily or delivered to another mailbox, you can create, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you will not miss a message that you require. The emails that the filter permits to go through will still appear in your inbox.
