Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, how they work and how to enable them.
Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – undesired messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get conned. This is why, numerous email service providers resort to email filters, which are software applications that monitor all inbound email messages and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how many times they are referred to, what website a particular hyperlink opens, what outgoing server the email comes from, etc. Some web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unrequested emails, to make certain that their clients won’t get any email in their mailbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting
package from us and if you use our mail services, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can pick between five different levels of security. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most popular email filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of each message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain message or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom filters and either eliminate unsolicited email messages or send them to a 3rd-party address like firstname.lastname@example.org where you can double-check them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
, you will not have to worry about spam messages clogging your mailboxes all the time, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated account. Our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with several clicks and you can choose one of the five levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, authentic messages get blocked, or if junk email messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be delivered to a special email account such as email@example.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to make certain that you haven’t missed a legitimate email message.
