Find out more about spam filters - exactly what they are, how they work and the ways to create one.
Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may get conned. That’s the reason why lots of mail service providers use spam filters, which are software applications that keep track of all incoming email messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how often they’re referred to, what web site a given hyperlink opens, what SMTP server the email is sent from, and so on. Some web hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unwanted messages, to make certain that their customers will not receive any email in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
If you order a shared web hosting
package from us and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks, you can pick between 5 separate security levels. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most popular filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each and every email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific message or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom email filters and either delete undesirable messages or send them to a third-party address like firstname.lastname@example.org where you can check them once again later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts deliver exceptional spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which sorts all inbound messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five separate levels of security – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine messages are reported as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be forwarded to a designated email address where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to make sure that important messages won’t disappear.
