Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. That’s why, plenty of email service providers make use of spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how often they are referred to, what web site a particular link opens, what mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Some web hosts also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about undesired email messages, to ensure that their customers will not receive any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
The protection of any mailbox that you set up under a cloud hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful 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 5 safety levels based on the spam score it gives to each email depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of certain words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss a legitimate email message, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a particular sender to another email address. If you reach the decision that you no longer need a spam filter for a particular email account, you can disable it with only a few clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts deliver top-of-the-line spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which ranks all incoming messages based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between 5 separate levels of protection – from very high to very low. If you continue to get junk emails, you can increase the level, or if genuine email messages are blocked as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as two mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be deleted instantly or if they should be delivered to a chosen email address where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that important email messages won’t get lost.
