What precisely is an e-mail spam filter? How does it function? How to activate spam filtering?
Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. undesired messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be swindled. Because of this, plenty of mail service providers make use of email filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message consists of and how many times they are cited, what site a specific link leads to, what outgoing email server the message is sent from, etc. Certain providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unrequested email messages, to make certain that their customers will not get any message in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you decide to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our cloud hosting, you will be able to enable spam filters for any mailbox that you create. With several clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 separate safety levels. In case you still receive spam email messages or the filters start preventing legitimate emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam service is ensured by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk missing a legitimate email that may be mistaken for spam because of its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and re-send the emails to some other email address where you can review them at a later time.
