Find out about spam filters - what exactly they are, how they work and the ways to set up one.
Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. undesired messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may be duped. That’s why, plenty of email service providers use email filters, which are applications that keep track of all inbound messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how often they’re cited, what web site a particular link opens, what outbound SMTP mail server the email comes from, etc. Some web hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about undesired email messages, to ensure that their customers will not get any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
If you get a website hosting
package from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than several mouse clicks, you can select between five different security levels. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most famous email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of every message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom filters and either erase unsolicited emails or send them to a 3rd-party email address like email@example.com where you can examine them once more afterwards.
