Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may get conned. That’s why, numerous email service providers use spam filters, which are software applications that keep track of all incoming emails and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how many times they’re cited, what web site a certain link leads to, what outbound SMTP email server the email message comes from, and so on. Some web hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unwelcome messages, to make certain that their customers will not get any email in their mailbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
If you decide to host your domains with us and you choose any of our Linux shared website hosting packages, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any email account that you create. With a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure five separate levels of protection. If you continue to get spam or the spam filters start preventing genuine email messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection service is guaranteed by one of the most popular email filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk omitting a legitimate email that may be flagged as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the email message and forward the emails to some other email address where you can review them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all undesired emails away from your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox at any moment. You can also fine-tune the level of protection with a few clicks in case junk messages still reach your inbox or the anti-spam filter begins removing authentic email messages. As you can choose whether the spam should be deleted instantly or re-sent to some other email address, you can create, for example, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you will not omit an email message that you require. The email messages that the filter permits to go through will still appear in your inbox.
