Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. undesired messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be tricked. That is why, plenty of email providers rely on spam filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound email messages and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message consists of and how many times they’re cited, what website a particular hyperlink opens, what outgoing email server the message is sent from, and so on. Certain companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unrequested email messages, to ensure that their customers will not get any email message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers employ one of the very best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each cloud hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the five levels of safety that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the content of each email message, gives it a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have picked. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose if the messages that the spam filter marks as spam should be erased or re-sent to another email account where you can review them at a later time, so as to avoid deleting a genuine message. Switching to another level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also surprisingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted under your account, you will be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited email messages out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any moment. You can also fine-tune the security level with a few clicks if spam emails continue to enter your mailbox or the filter starts deleting authentic messages. As you can choose whether the spam should be deleted instantly or delivered to another mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss an email message that you need. The email messages that the anti-spam filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
