What precisely is an e-mail spam filter? How does it operate? How could you activate spam filtering?
Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be tricked. That is the reason why many mail service providers resort to email filters, which are applications that keep track of all inbound email messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email message contains and how often they are mentioned, what website a given link leads to, what mail server the email comes from, etc. Some web hosts also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about undesired messages, to ensure that their customers won’t get any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Hosting
The security of any mailbox that you create in a hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to each and every email message depending on various parameters, such as the recurrence of specific words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam emails, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may skip an authentic email, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a given sender to some other email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with only several clicks.
