Learn more about spam filters - precisely what they are, the way they work and the way to create one.
Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may be swindled. Because of this, lots of email service providers rely on spam filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how many times they are cited, what site a specific hyperlink opens, what outbound SMTP email server the email message comes from, and so on. Certain hosting providers also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about undesired emails, to ensure that their customers will not receive any email in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
The protection of any email account that you set up in a shared web hosting
account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five security levels based on the spam score it gives to every email message in accordance with various criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting spam, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may miss a genuine message, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a particular sender to some other email account. If you decide that you no longer require an email filter for a given email account, you can deactivate it with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
packages offer first-rate spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which ranks all inbound messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five separate levels – from very low to very high. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can raise the level, or if authentic email messages are classified as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased immediately or if they should be redirected to a chosen email address where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that valuable messages will not disappear.
