What exactly is an e-mail spam filter? How does one work? How could you enable spam filtering?
Most of the email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may get swindled. That’s the reason why plenty of email providers make use of spam filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound email messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how many times they are mentioned, what website a particular link leads to, what outgoing SMTP email server the message is sent from, etc. Some hosting companies also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about unrequested emails, to make certain that their customers will not get any message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
Our website hosting
servers employ one of the very best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every shared web hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can choose one of the five levels of safety that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with just 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the body of each email message, calculates a spam score and then continues according to the level that you have selected. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose whether the emails that the filter marks as spam should be deleted or forwarded to some other mailbox where you can check them later, so as to prevent erasing an authentic message. Switching to a different level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also really easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use a semi-dedicated server
package from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you will be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all undesirable messages away from your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also alter the level of security with a few clicks of the mouse if junk messages still reach your mailbox or the anti-spam filter starts removing genuine email messages. As you can select if the spam should be deleted momentarily or re-sent to another email account, you can create firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you will not omit an email message that you require. The email messages that the email filter permits to proceed will still appear in your inbox.
