Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – undesirable messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get tricked. This is the reason why plenty of mail service providers rely on spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how many times they are referred to, what site a certain hyperlink redirects to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email comes from, and so on. Certain providers also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about undesired emails, to make certain that their customers won’t receive any message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with every cloud hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the 5 levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the body of each and every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have picked. Every email account can have a different setting and you can select if the email messages that the anti-spam filter labels as spam should be erased or forwarded to a separate mailbox where you can view them later, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate email. Changing the level or deactivating the spam protection is also rather easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted under the account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome messages out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any time. You can also alter the protection level with several mouse clicks in case junk email messages continue to enter your inbox or the filter begins removing authentic messages. Since you can choose whether the spam should be deleted instantly or delivered to a different mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you will not omit an email that you require. The emails that the spam filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
