Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, how they work and how to enable them.
Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may be scammed. That’s why, a lot of email service providers resort to spam filters, which are software apps that keep track of all incoming emails and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how often they are referred to, what website a particular link redirects to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email is sent from, etc. Certain companies also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about unasked-for messages, to ensure that their clients will not receive any message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
In case you decide to host your domain names with us and you select any of our shared website hosting plans
, you will be able to enable spam filters for any email address that you set up. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 separate security levels. If you still get spam messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate email messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam filtering service is guaranteed by one of the most popular filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk missing a legitimate message that may be mistaken for spam because of its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and re-send the emails to a different mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time.
