Most of the email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. undesirable messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may be duped. That is why, numerous mail service providers use email filters, which are software apps that monitor all incoming messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they are referred to, what site a certain link redirects to, what outbound SMTP email server the email message is sent from, and so on. Certain providers also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unsolicited email messages, to make sure that their clients won’t receive any email in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting plan from us and if you make use of our mail services, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a few clicks of the mouse, you can select between five separate levels of safety. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each and every email that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular message or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom filters and either erase unsolicited messages or send them to a third-party address like where you can examine them once again at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you will be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome messages out of your inbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also tweak the level of safety with a few mouse clicks in case unsolicited bulk emails continue to appear in your mailbox or the email filter begins removing genuine emails. As you can select if the spam should be erased momentarily or re-sent to a separate email account, you can set up, for example, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you will not omit an email that you require. The emails that the anti-spam filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
