Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. undesirable messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may get duped. For this reason, plenty of email providers make use of email filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all inbound email messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email consists of and how often they’re referred to, what web site a given link opens, what mail server the message comes from, and so on. Some web hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unwelcome emails, to make certain that their clients won’t receive any message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only several clicks, you can pick between five separate safety levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of every email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email message or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either eliminate undesirable messages or send them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once more at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you will not have to worry about spam messages filling up your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated server account. Our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with several clicks and you can choose any of the 5 levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for instance, legitimate email messages get filtered, or if spam emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be re-sent to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t omitted a genuine email.
