Find out more on spam filters - precisely what they are, the way they work and the way to set up one.
Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. undesired messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get tricked. That is the reason why lots of email providers rely on spam filters, which are software applications that keep track of all incoming email messages and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they are referred to, what website a particular hyperlink redirects to, what SMTP server the email message is sent from, and so on. Some web hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unsolicited messages, to make certain that their customers will not receive any email in their inbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting
servers rely on one of the very best spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with every cloud hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the 5 levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the content of each email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you’ve opted for. Every email account can have a different level and you can select if the emails that the filter labels as spam should be deleted or redirected to some other email address where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting a genuine email. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also remarkably easy.
