Read more about spam filters - what they are, the way they work and ways to set up one.
Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. undesirable messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be conned. That is why, plenty of email providers rely on email filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound emails and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how often they are cited, what web site a specific link redirects to, what outgoing server the email message is sent from, and so on. Some web hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unasked-for email messages, to ensure that their clients will not get any email message in their inbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
If you order a web hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can choose between five separate levels of security. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually boost the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email or allows it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either get rid of unwanted emails or send them to a 3rd-party address such as email@example.com where you can double-check them after that.
