Find out more about spam filters - what exactly they are, the way they work and the ways to set up one.
Most of the email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may be scammed. That’s the reason why plenty of email service providers make use of spam filters, which are software apps that keep track of all incoming messages and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email message includes and how many times they’re referred to, what web site a certain hyperlink redirects to, what outbound email server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain companies also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about undesired emails, to make certain that their customers won’t get any message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
Our web hosting
servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each shared hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can select one of the five levels of safety that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the body of every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have selected. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the email messages that the filter flags as spam should be erased or re-sent to a different mailbox where you can view them later, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the spam protection is also really easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans come with top-class spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which classifies all inbound emails based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of specific keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five different levels of security – from very low to very high. If you continue to get spam, you can increase the level, or if legitimate emails are tagged as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted straight away or if they should be forwarded to a designated email account where you can examine them at a later time, so as to make certain that the email messages that you need will not disappear.
