Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may get conned. This is the reason why lots of email providers resort to email filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how many times they are referred to, what website a given hyperlink opens, what server the email comes from, and so on. Some providers also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unwelcome messages, to ensure that their customers won’t get any email message in their mailbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
The safety of any mailbox that you create under a cloud hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five levels of security based on the spam score it gives to each and every email message in accordance with different parameters, such as the recurrence of given words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may omit a genuine message, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a specific sender to a separate email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with just a few mouse clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t need to worry about unsolicited bulk messages occupying your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any email account with a few clicks and you can pick any of the 5 levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for instance, authentic email messages get blocked, or if junk email messages go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be re-sent to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. Thus, you can go through them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t missed out on a genuine email.
