Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. For this reason, many email providers make use of spam filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how many times they’re referred to, what site a given hyperlink opens, what SMTP server the email message is sent from, and so on. Certain hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unrequested email messages, to make certain that their clients won’t get any email message in their mailbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to use the email service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you can keep all unasked-for messages away from your mailbox by activating the five-level anti-spam protection service that we offer with each and every package. This can be accomplished through the feature-ridden Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we rely on the advanced SpamAssassin filter to make sure that we offer the best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different level of protection for each mailbox and you can select if the filtered email messages should be deleted or redirected to a separate email account where you can examine them at a later point in time to ensure that you will not miss legitimate emails. Switching to some other protection level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also easy and requires a couple of clicks.
