Find out more about spam filters - what exactly they are, the way they work and the way to set up one.
Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get tricked. That is the reason why a lot of email service providers make use of email filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message includes and how often they are referred to, what site a given hyperlink points to, what mail server the email message is sent from, etc. Certain providers also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about undesired messages, to make certain that their clients won’t get any email message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
The security of any mailbox that you create under a shared website hosting
account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five safety levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every email message depending on different parameters, such as the frequency of certain words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may omit a genuine message, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a given sender to a different email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a given mailbox, you can disable it with only a few mouse clicks.
