Read more about spam filters - what exactly they are, how they work and how to set up one.
Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. undesired messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may be tricked. For this reason, a lot of mail service providers rely on email filters, which are software apps that keep track of all inbound messages and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email consists of and how often they’re cited, what website a specific hyperlink opens, what outgoing SMTP server the message comes from, and so on. Some hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about undesirable emails, to make sure that their customers won’t get any email message in their inbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
If you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our website hosting
, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any mailbox that you create. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different protection levels. In case you still get junk messages or the email filters start preventing genuine messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection service is ensured by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk skipping a genuine email message that may be regarded as spam due to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the message and redirect the emails to another mailbox where you can view them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server
plan from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all undesirable messages away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also alter the level of security with several mouse clicks if spam messages still appear in your inbox or the filter begins removing legitimate messages. As you can choose if the spam should be deleted instantaneously or delivered to another email address, you can set up firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you will not miss an email that you need. The emails that the spam filter permits to proceed will still appear in your inbox.
