Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. That’s why, numerous email service providers resort to email filters, which are software applications that keep track of all inbound emails and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email includes and how many times they’re cited, what site a particular hyperlink leads to, what outgoing server the email message comes from, etc. Certain web hosts also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unsolicited email messages, to make sure that their customers won’t get any message in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

If you get a shared website hosting package from us and if you use our mail services, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can pick between 5 different levels of safety. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks 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 certain message or allows it to enter your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to create custom filters and either erase undesired email messages or redirect them to a third-party address like where you can read them again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all unwanted emails away from your inbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any moment. You can also change the security level with a few clicks of the mouse in case junk messages still appear in your inbox or the email filter starts deleting genuine email messages. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted right away or delivered to some other email account, you can set up, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you will not miss an email that you require. The emails that the spam filter permits to proceed will still appear in your mailbox.
