Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, what they do and how you can activate them.
Most of the email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. For this reason, lots of email service providers make use of email filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound emails and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message contains and how many times they’re mentioned, what web site a specific link opens, what SMTP email server the message comes from, and so on. Certain web hosting providers also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about undesired messages, to make sure that their clients won’t receive any email in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
If you get a web hosting package from our company and if you use our mail services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just several clicks, you can choose between 5 different security levels. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header and the body of each message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom email filters and either delete unwanted emails or forward them to a third-party address like email@example.com where you can check them once more at a later point in time.
