What's an e-mail spam filter? How does it operate? How do you activate spam filtering?
Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get ripped off. This is the reason why plenty of mail service providers make use of spam filters, which are applications that keep track of all incoming emails and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email includes and how often they are mentioned, what site a certain link leads to, what mail server the email comes from, etc. Certain companies also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about undesirable email messages, to make certain that their customers will not receive any message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting
servers use one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with every shared hosting package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the 5 safety levels that the filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the content of every email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you’ve picked. Each email account can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the spam filter considers as spam should be erased or delivered to some other email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email. Switching to a different level or deactivating the anti-spam 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 create one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you will be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited email messages out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also fine-tune the safety level with several clicks if junk email messages still appear in your inbox or the filter starts erasing legitimate messages. Since you can choose if the spam should be erased instantly or redirected to a different mailbox, you can create firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you will not omit an email message that you require. The messages that the spam filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
