Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – undesirable messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. That is the reason why plenty of email providers make use of email filters, which are apps that keep track of all inbound messages and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how often they’re cited, what site a particular hyperlink opens, what outbound mail server the email message comes from, etc. Some web hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unwelcome messages, to make certain that their clients will not receive any message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
In case you decide to host your domain names with our company and you select any of our Linux web hosting, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any email account that you set up. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 separate levels of protection. In case you still get unsolicited bulk email messages or the spam filters start preventing genuine email messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing a legitimate email that may be flagged as spam because of its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and forward the emails to another email address where you can review them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t need to worry about unsolicited bulk emails cramming your mailboxes every now and then, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we provide with every account. Our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks of the mouse and you can choose any of the five levels of safety – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, genuine emails get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk emails go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be forwarded to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can check them every now and then to make sure that you have not missed out on an authentic message.
