Most of the emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may be scammed. That’s the reason why a lot of email providers rely on email filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how many times they are mentioned, what site a specific hyperlink opens, what outbound SMTP email server the email comes from, and so on. Some web hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unwanted email messages, to make sure that their customers won’t get any email message in their mailbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
The safety of any mailbox that you set up in a cloud website hosting
account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five safety levels based on the spam score it gives to every message in accordance with various criteria, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip a genuine email, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to some other mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer need an email filter for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with only a few clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated servers
, you won’t have to worry about unsolicited bulk messages cramming your mailboxes every now and then, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any email account with a few clicks and you can select one of the 5 levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, genuine messages get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be re-sent to a special mailbox like firstname.lastname@example.org and not to be deleted. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to ensure that you have not missed a genuine message.
