What exactly is an e-mail spam filter? How does one work? How could you enable spam filtering?
Most emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. undesirable messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may be tricked. This is the reason why a lot of email providers rely on spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how many times they are cited, what web site a given link redirects to, what outbound email server the email message comes from, and so on. Some web hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unwelcome emails, to make certain that their clients will not get any email in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
Our web hosting
servers use one of the very best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every cloud web hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the 5 protection levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the body of each and every email message, calculates a spam score and then continues according to the level that you have selected. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the spam filter reports as spam should be erased or forwarded to some other mailbox where you can check them later, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate email message. Switching to a different level or disabling the protection is also stunningly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use a semi-dedicated server
package from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you will be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome messages away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any time. You can also change the safety level with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case spam messages still reach your mailbox or the anti-spam filter starts deleting genuine email messages. Since you can choose whether the spam should be erased instantly or forwarded to some other email account, you can create email@example.com, for instance, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t miss an email that you require. The email messages that the spam filter permits to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
