Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may be ripped off. That’s why, plenty of mail service providers use spam filters, which are software apps that monitor all incoming emails and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how many times they’re referred to, what site a certain link points to, what SMTP mail server the email message comes from, etc. Some hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about undesired emails, to make sure that their customers won’t receive any message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Hosting
Our hosting servers employ one of the very best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every cloud web hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can opt for one of the five safety levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the body of every email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you’ve chosen. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can choose whether the emails that the filter considers as spam should be deleted or re-sent to a different mailbox where you can check them later, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate email. Switching to another level or disabling the spam protection is also really easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to make use of the email service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you can keep all undesired messages away from your inbox by activating the 5-level anti-spam protection that we provide with each semi-dedicated server plan. This can be done via the feature-laden Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we use the powerful SpamAssassin email filter to ensure that we provide the best possible security for our customers. You can have a different anti-spam level for each mailbox and you can select whether the filtered emails should be erased or delivered to a separate email address where you can review them at a later time in order to make sure that you will not lose legitimate email messages. Switching to a different level of protection or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also easy and requires a couple of clicks of the mouse.
