Find out more on spam filters - what exactly they are, the way they work and how to set up one.
Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. That’s why, lots of mail service providers resort to spam filters, which are applications that monitor all incoming messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how often they are mentioned, what website a particular link opens, what outgoing email server the email is sent from, etc. Certain web hosts also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unwelcome email messages, to make certain that their clients won’t receive any email message in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you order a shared hosting
package from us and if you use our mail services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a few mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 separate safety levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of every message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email message or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom email filters and either get rid of unsolicited emails or re-send them to a 3rd-party address such as email@example.com where you can view them once more at a later point in time.
