Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, what they do and how to activate them.
Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. Because of this, numerous email service providers rely on spam filters, which are apps that keep track of all incoming emails and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how many times they’re referred to, what site a certain link redirects to, what SMTP mail server the email message comes from, etc. Some hosting providers also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unwanted messages, to make sure that their clients will not get any message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
The security of any email account that you create in a shared hosting
account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five protection levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every message depending on different parameters, such as the frequency of given words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may omit a genuine message, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a specific sender to another email address. If you decide that you no longer want an email filter for a specific email account, you can disable it with no more than several mouse clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages
, you won’t have to worry about junk messages occupying your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a few clicks of the mouse and you can select one of the 5 levels of safety – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, legitimate messages get blocked, or if junk emails go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be forwarded to a special email account such as firstname.lastname@example.org and not to be erased. Thus, you can check them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t omitted a legitimate email message.
