Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – undesired messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. That is the reason why many email service providers resort to email filters, which are applications that keep track of all incoming email messages and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how often they are cited, what website a certain link opens, what SMTP email server the message is sent from, etc. Certain web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unwelcome email messages, to ensure that their customers will not get any message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
Our website hosting servers employ one of the very best spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every shared hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can opt for one of the 5 security levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the body of every message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have chosen. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose if the email messages that the spam filter classifies as spam should be erased or forwarded to a separate mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email. Switching to a different level or disabling the protection is also rather easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you reach the decision to make use of the mail service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you can keep all unasked-for messages away from your mailbox by enabling the five-level anti-spam protection that we provide with each semi-dedicated server package. This can be accomplished via the feature-loaded Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we rely on the powerful SpamAssassin filter to make certain that we offer the very best possible security for our customers. You can have a different anti-spam level for each mailbox and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased or redirected to a separate email address where you can review them later so as to make sure that you will not miss legitimate email messages. Switching to another level of protection or disabling the spam protection is also easy and requires several clicks.
