Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, what they do and how to activate them.
Most of the email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may be duped. That’s the reason why plenty of mail service providers make use of spam filters, which are applications that monitor all incoming email messages and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how often they’re referred to, what site a given hyperlink leads to, what outbound mail server the message is sent from, and so on. Some web hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unsolicited messages, to make certain that their customers will not receive any email in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to each and every message depending on various criteria, such as the frequency of given words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may omit an authentic email, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a specific sender to a different mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer want a spam filter for a certain email account, you can disable it with only a couple of mouse clicks.
