What is an e-mail spam filter? How does one function? How can you enable spam filtering?
Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may be duped. That’s why, a lot of mail service providers resort to email filters, which are apps that keep track of all incoming emails and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how many times they’re cited, what website a specific hyperlink redirects to, what outbound SMTP server the message comes from, etc. Some web hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about unasked-for emails, to make sure that their clients will not get any email in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
If you get a shared website hosting
package from us and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just several clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 different levels of safety. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level till you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of each and every email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email message or allows it to reach your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to activate custom spam filters and either get rid of unwanted messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party address like email@example.com where you can check them once more at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server
plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome emails away from your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you wish. You can also alter the level of protection with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case junk messages still enter your mailbox or the spam filter begins deleting authentic email messages. As you can select if the spam should be erased straight away or redirected to a separate email address, you can create firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you will not omit an email message that you need. The email messages that the anti-spam filter permits to proceed will still be received in your mailbox.
