Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. 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 scammed. That is the reason why plenty of mail service providers use email filters, which are applications that monitor all inbound emails and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how often they’re referred to, what website a certain hyperlink leads to, what mail server the email comes from, and so on. Certain hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unwelcome messages, to make sure that their customers will not receive any message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
If you decide to host your domain names with our company and you select any of our Linux website hosting services, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any mailbox that you create. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between five separate levels of security. If you still get junk emails or the spam filters start preventing genuine emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering service is ensured by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing a genuine message that may be flagged as spam due to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and re-send the emails to a separate email address where you can check them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all undesired messages away from your inbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you wish. You can also tweak the level of safety with a few clicks in case spam email messages still reach your mailbox or the email filter starts erasing authentic emails. As you can choose if the spam should be deleted instantaneously or redirected to some other mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t omit an email message that you require. The emails that the filter allows to proceed will still appear in your mailbox.
