Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get ripped off. This is why, a lot of email providers resort to email filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how many times they’re mentioned, what site a given link points to, what SMTP mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unsolicited messages, to make sure that their clients will not receive any email in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you order a shared hosting package from our company and if you use our email services, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few mouse clicks, you can choose between five different protection levels. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to activate custom email filters and either get rid of unasked-for messages or send them to a third-party address such as where you can view them once again later.
