Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – undesired messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may be tricked. That is why, a lot of email providers resort to email filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email consists of and how often they are referred to, what website a given hyperlink redirects to, what SMTP email server the message comes from, etc. Some web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unasked-for email messages, to ensure that their clients will not get any message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you pick any of our Linux shared packages, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any email address that you create. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure five different security levels. In case you still get spam messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate email messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering service is ensured by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk omitting a genuine email message that may be mistaken for spam because of its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and re-send the emails to a different mailbox where you can review them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you decide to use the mail service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you can keep all undesired emails away from your mailbox by activating the five-level anti-spam protection that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated package. This can be achieved via the feature-laden Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we rely on the advanced SpamAssassin email filter to ensure that we provide the very best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different level of protection for each mailbox and you can choose whether the filtered email messages should be deleted or delivered to a separate email address where you can read them later in order to make certain that you won’t miss legitimate messages. Changing the level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also easy and takes several clicks.
