What is an e-mail spam filter? How does one work? How do you activate spam filtering?
Most email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – undesired messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may get duped. This is the reason why lots of email service providers make use of spam filters, which are apps that keep track of all incoming messages and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how many times they’re referred to, what site a certain hyperlink opens, what outgoing SMTP server the email is sent from, etc. Some web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about undesirable emails, to make sure that their clients will not receive any email message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
Our web hosting
servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each shared web hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the 5 levels of security that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the content of each email message, gives it a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you have picked. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the messages that the spam filter considers as spam should be deleted or redirected to a different mailbox where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing a genuine message. Changing the level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also truly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts deliver top-of-the-line anti-spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of specific keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between five separate levels – from very high to very low. If you still get junk messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine emails are mistaken for spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered emails should be deleted straight away or if they should be re-sent to a chosen mailbox where you can read them at a later time, so as to ensure that the emails that you need won’t get lost.
