What's an e-mail spam filter? How does one work? How do you activate spam filtering?
Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – undesired messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may be swindled. Because of this, plenty of mail service providers rely on spam filters, which are software apps that keep track of all inbound email messages and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how many times they are referred to, what web site a given link redirects to, what outbound mail server the message comes from, and so on. Some providers also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about undesirable email messages, to make sure that their customers will not get any email in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
In case you decide to host your domain names with us and you pick any of our Linux shared website hosting packages, you will be able to set up spam filters for any email address that you set up. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can switch between 5 separate security levels. In case you continue to get unsolicited bulk emails or the spam filters start preventing genuine emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk skipping a genuine email that may be blocked as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and redirect the emails to another email address where you can examine them later.
