Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. undesired messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. This is why, plenty of email providers rely on spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how many times they are referred to, what web site a particular hyperlink points to, what outgoing SMTP server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain web hosting providers also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about undesired emails, to make certain that their customers won’t receive any message in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you order a shared hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks, you can choose between 5 separate levels of security. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most famous spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each and every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email message or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom filters and either erase unsolicited emails or send them to a 3rd-party email address such as where you can view them once again afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you reach the decision to make use of the mail service that comes with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all unwelcome emails out of your mailbox by activating the 5-level spam protection that we provide with each and every package. This can be accomplished through the feature-ridden Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we employ the powerful SpamAssassin email filter to ensure that we offer the very best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different anti-spam level for each email account and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased or redirected to another email account where you can view them later so as to ensure that you won’t lose authentic emails. Switching to some other protection level or disabling the spam protection is also easy and takes several clicks.
