Most of the email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – undesired messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be conned. That is the reason why lots of mail service providers use spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email contains and how many times they are cited, what web site a certain hyperlink opens, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email comes from, and so on. Some web hosts also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about undesired messages, to make sure that their clients won’t get any email in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting package from our company and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a few mouse clicks, you can choose between 5 different levels of protection. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually boost the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous email filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email message or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom email filters and either get rid of unwelcome messages or redirect them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once more after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all undesired messages out of your inbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox at any moment. You can also change the level of safety with a few mouse clicks in case spam messages still appear in your mailbox or the spam filter starts deleting authentic emails. Since you can select whether the spam should be erased instantly or re-sent to some other email account, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you will not miss an email that you require. The email messages that the email filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
