Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may get tricked. This is why, numerous email providers make use of spam filters, which are software apps that keep track of all incoming email messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email includes and how often they are referred to, what website a specific hyperlink leads to, what mail server the email message comes from, and so on. Some web hosts also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unwanted emails, to ensure that their customers will not receive any message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting package from us and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than several mouse clicks, you can select between five different protection levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the best and most famous filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom spam filters and either eliminate unwelcome messages or re-send them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can check them once again after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted under the account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesired email messages out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you wish. You can also alter the safety level with a few clicks of the mouse in case spam messages still appear in your inbox or the anti-spam filter begins removing genuine messages. As you can choose if the spam should be deleted immediately or redirected to a separate email address, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you will not omit a message that you require. The emails that the filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
