What is an e-mail spam filter? How does one function? How to activate spam filtering?
Most of the email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may be swindled. That’s why, many mail service providers resort to spam filters, which are applications that keep track of all incoming messages and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email message consists of and how many times they’re mentioned, what site a particular hyperlink points to, what outbound email server the email message is sent from, etc. Certain hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unasked-for emails, to ensure that their customers will not get any email in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
The security of any mailbox that you set up under a cloud web hosting
account with us 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 5 protection levels based on the spam score it gives to each message depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may miss a legitimate message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a certain sender to a separate email account. If you decide that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a specific mailbox, you can disable it with only several clicks of the mouse.
