Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, the things they do and how you can enable them.
Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – undesired messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be scammed. Because of this, plenty of mail service providers rely on email filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all incoming email messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message contains and how many times they are cited, what web site a specific hyperlink points to, what outgoing SMTP server the message is sent from, etc. Certain web hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unwelcome messages, to ensure that their customers will not get any email message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting
servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every plan, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the 5 levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the body of each message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have opted for. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the emails that the anti-spam filter classifies as spam should be erased or forwarded to a different mailbox where you can check them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting a genuine email message. Changing the level or disabling the spam protection is also astonishingly easy.
