What is an e-mail spam filter? How does it work? How could you activate spam filtering?
Most of the email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with different 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 get conned. That is why, a lot of email providers make use of spam filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound emails and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how often they’re referred to, what site a specific link opens, what outgoing email server the message is sent from, etc. Some web hosting providers also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unsolicited messages, to make certain that their customers will not receive any email message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
The safety of any mailbox that you set up under a cloud web hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 safety levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every message depending on different parameters, such as the frequency of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip an authentic email message, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a specific sender to a different email account. In case you decide that you no longer require a spam filter for a given mailbox, you can deactivate it with just several clicks of the mouse.
