Most of the email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. Because of this, numerous email service providers make use of email filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how many times they are mentioned, what site a certain link opens, what outbound SMTP email server the email is sent from, etc. Certain web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unsolicited messages, to make sure that their customers won’t get any email in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than several clicks of the mouse, you can choose between five separate protection levels. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most popular filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of each and every email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email or permits it to reach your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to set up custom spam filters and either get rid of undesired messages or send them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can examine them once again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you use one of our semi-dedicated packages, you will not have to worry about junk email messages stuffing your mailboxes every now and then, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with a few mouse clicks and you can pick any of the 5 protection levels – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, authentic emails get filtered, or if junk email messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be forwarded to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to make certain that you haven’t missed a genuine email.
