What is an e-mail spam filter? How does it work? How to enable spam filtering?
Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may be conned. That is the reason why many email providers make use of email filters, which are software applications that keep track of all inbound email messages and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how many times they’re referred to, what website a specific hyperlink leads to, what outgoing mail server the email comes from, and so on. Certain web hosts also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unwelcome messages, to ensure that their clients will not get any email message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you decide to host your domains with our company and you choose any of our shared hosting, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any email address that you create. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five different levels of protection. If you continue to get spam or the filters start preventing authentic messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection solution is guaranteed by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk missing a genuine email that may be flagged as spam because of its content, you can also create custom filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the email message and forward the emails to another email address where you can view them later.
