What's an e-mail spam filter? How does one work? How could you activate spam filtering?
Most of the emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – undesired messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be duped. That’s the reason why a lot of email providers make use of spam filters, which are apps that monitor all incoming email messages and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message contains and how many times they’re mentioned, what website a particular link opens, what outgoing email server the message comes from, and so on. Certain hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unasked-for messages, to make sure that their customers will not receive any message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting
servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each shared hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with us, you can select one of the 5 security levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the body of every email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have selected. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can choose whether the emails that the filter reports as spam should be deleted or redirected to some other mailbox where you can review them later, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate email. Changing the level or deactivating the spam protection is also stunningly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server
package from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome email messages away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also adjust the safety level with a couple of clicks in case spam messages still reach your mailbox or the spam filter starts deleting legitimate messages. As you can choose whether the spam should be deleted instantaneously or delivered to some other email account, you can set up email@example.com, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t omit an email message that you require. The email messages that the filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
