Most emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – undesirable messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may be swindled. That’s the reason why plenty of mail service providers use email filters, which are applications that keep track of all incoming emails and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email message includes and how often they’re referred to, what website a certain link redirects to, what outbound SMTP mail server the email message is sent from, and so on. Certain companies also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about unrequested messages, to make certain that their customers won’t receive any message in their inbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
If you get a website hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks, you can select between 5 different security levels. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most famous email filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of each and every message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific message or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to create custom email filters and either eliminate undesired messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party email address such as where you can check them once more after that.
