Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, how they work and how you can enable them.
Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be tricked. That’s the reason why lots of email providers make use of spam filters, which are applications that monitor all incoming emails and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how many times they’re cited, what web site a particular link points to, what outgoing SMTP server the message is sent from, etc. Some companies also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unwelcome email messages, to ensure that their customers won’t receive any email in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
The security of any email account that you create under a shared hosting
account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five protection levels based on the spam score given to each and every email in accordance with various criteria, such as the frequency of particular words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss an authentic message, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a given sender to some other email address. If you reach the decision that you no longer want an email filter for a particular email account, you can deactivate it with just a couple of mouse clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts provide excellent spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which classifies all inbound messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between 5 separate levels of safety – from very high to very low. If you keep getting junk messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate email messages are tagged as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted immediately or if they should be delivered to a chosen email address where you can check them later, so as to make sure that valuable emails won’t get lost.
