Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may get tricked. That’s why, many email providers use email filters, which are software apps that keep track of all inbound messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email consists of and how often they’re cited, what website a particular link leads to, what outgoing SMTP server the email comes from, and so on. Certain providers also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unwelcome email messages, to ensure that their customers will not receive any message in their mailbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Hosting
The protection of any email account that you create under a hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 protection levels based on the spam score it gives to every message in accordance with various criteria, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss a legitimate email, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a certain sender to a different email address. If you reach the decision that you no longer want an email filter for a certain email account, you can disable it with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse.
