Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, how they work and how to activate them.
Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may get swindled. For this reason, many mail service providers use email filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message consists of and how often they are referred to, what site a certain hyperlink points to, what SMTP mail server the email message is sent from, etc. Certain companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unwanted emails, to ensure that their clients will not receive any message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting
servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every web hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can select one of the five levels of security that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the content of every email message, gives it a spam score and then continues according to the level that you’ve opted for. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the messages that the filter considers as spam should be deleted or redirected to a different email address where you can view them at a later time, so as to prevent erasing an authentic email message. Switching to another level or deactivating the protection is also astonishingly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server
package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under your account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all undesirable messages out of your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox at any time. You can also fine-tune the level of security with a few clicks of the mouse in case junk messages continue to appear in your mailbox or the email filter starts deleting legitimate email messages. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted momentarily or forwarded to a different email account, you can set up firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t miss an email message that you need. The messages that the email filter allows to go through will still be received in your inbox.
