Find out more about spam filters - exactly what they are, how they work and the ways to set up one.
Most of the email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – undesired messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may get swindled. That’s why, many email service providers resort to email filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how many times they are referred to, what web site a specific link redirects to, what SMTP mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about undesired email messages, to ensure that their clients won’t get any email message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
The security of any email account that you set up under a cloud website hosting
account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 protection levels based on the spam score it gives to each email message in accordance with various parameters, such as the recurrence of given words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk emails, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may miss an authentic email message, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a particular sender to a different mailbox. If you decide that you no longer want an email filter for a certain mailbox, you can deactivate it with only a few clicks.
