Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, the things they do and how you can enable them.
Most of the email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be conned. That’s the reason why a lot of mail service providers make use of email filters, which are applications that monitor all inbound emails and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how many times they’re referred to, what web site a specific link points to, what outgoing mail server the message comes from, etc. Some hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unsolicited messages, to make sure that their customers will not get any email message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
In case you decide to host your domain names with us and you pick any of our shared plans
, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any mailbox that you set up. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 different levels of safety. In case you still receive junk emails or the filters start preventing legitimate emails from entering your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection service is ensured by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk skipping a genuine message that may be regarded as spam due to its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to a separate mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use a semi-dedicated server
plan from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all unwanted emails away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also fine-tune the level of protection with a couple of clicks in case unsolicited bulk emails continue to enter your mailbox or the email filter begins deleting genuine email messages. Since you can select whether the spam should be deleted immediately or forwarded to some other email address, you can set up email@example.com, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you will not miss an email that you need. The messages that the email filter permits to proceed will still appear in your mailbox.
