Most of the email messages sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. This is why, plenty of email providers rely on email filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how often they are cited, what web site a particular hyperlink points to, what outgoing mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain web hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about unasked-for email messages, to ensure that their customers won’t receive any email in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
The safety of any mailbox that you set up under a shared website hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of protection based on the spam score given to each email message depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip a legitimate email, you can mix the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to a separate mailbox. If you decide that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a given email account, you can deactivate it with only a few clicks.
