Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. undesired messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be swindled. That’s why, numerous email service providers resort to email filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how often they’re referred to, what web site a particular link leads to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unwelcome messages, to ensure that their clients will not get any email message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
If you decide to host your domains with us and you pick any of our Linux web hosting packages, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any email account that you set up. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five separate safety levels. If you continue to get spam or the email filters start preventing authentic emails from entering your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection solution is guaranteed by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping a legitimate message that may be mistaken for spam because of its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the message and re-send the emails to a separate email address where you can view them later.
