Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. undesired messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get conned. Because of this, numerous email providers resort to email filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound messages and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email message consists of and how many times they are referred to, what website a certain link opens, what email server the message comes from, etc. Certain web hosts also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unrequested messages, to make sure that their customers won’t get any message in their mailbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
If you get a shared web hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a few clicks of the mouse, you can choose between 5 different security levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email message or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either delete unwanted emails or redirect them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can check them again at a later time.
