Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may be conned. That’s why, numerous email providers rely on email filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how many times they are referred to, what website a specific hyperlink leads to, what email server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about undesirable email messages, to make certain that their clients will not receive any email message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
The protection of any mailbox that you create in a cloud web hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 safety levels based on the spam score given to every email depending on various criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss a genuine email, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to some other mailbox. In case you reach the decision that you no longer need an email filter for a specific email account, you can disable it with just a few mouse clicks.
