Find out more on spam filters - just what they are, the way they work and the ways to create one.
Most of the email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – undesired messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get conned. That is the reason why plenty of email providers rely on spam filters, which are software apps that keep track of all inbound email messages and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how many times they’re referred to, what web site a certain hyperlink points to, what email server the message is sent from, etc. Certain hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unsolicited emails, to make sure that their clients will not get any message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
In case you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you select any of our shared hosting plans
, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any email address that you set up. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up 5 separate levels of security. If you still get spam emails or the spam filters start preventing authentic email messages from entering your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection solution is ensured by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk omitting an authentic message that may be regarded as spam because of its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to another mailbox where you can view them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
packages offer second-to-none anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all incoming email messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any email account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five different levels of protection – from very high to very low. If you keep getting spam messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine emails are tagged as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted straight away or if they should be redirected to a designated email address where you can view them later, so as to make sure that important email messages won’t disappear.
