Learn more about spam filters - what they are, how they work and ways to set up one.
Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may be duped. This is the reason why a lot of email service providers use spam filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound emails and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email message contains and how many times they’re mentioned, what website a specific hyperlink points to, what server the email message comes from, and so on. Certain companies also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unasked-for messages, to make sure that their clients will not receive any email message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
The security of any email account that you create under a web hosting
account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five protection levels based on the spam score given to each email depending on various parameters, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may miss a legitimate email, you can mix the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a certain sender to another email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a specific email account, you can deactivate it with no more than a few mouse clicks.
