Most 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 email messages irritating, but they also present a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. That’s why, lots of email service providers rely on email filters, which are software applications that monitor all inbound messages and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email contains and how often they’re cited, what website a specific hyperlink redirects to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the message is sent from, etc. Certain providers also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unsolicited email messages, to make sure that their customers will not get any message in their mailbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
Our website hosting servers rely on one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with every hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can pick one of the five security levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the content of each email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have selected. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select if the email messages that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or delivered to a separate mailbox where you can check them later, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate message. Switching to a different level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also rather easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts deliver top-class spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which ranks all inbound messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between 5 separate safety levels – from very high to very low. If you still receive junk emails, you can raise the level, or if genuine messages are blocked as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be forwarded to a chosen mailbox where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that the emails that you need will not disappear.
