Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be duped. That is why, plenty of email providers use email filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email includes and how often they are cited, what website a specific hyperlink leads to, what outgoing SMTP server the email is sent from, and so on. Some web hosting providers also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date information about undesirable messages, to ensure that their clients will not get any email message in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you get a hosting plan from us and if you make use of our mail services, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just several mouse clicks, you can select between five separate safety levels. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most famous spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each and every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific email or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom filters and either erase unasked-for email messages or forward them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can double-check them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t have to worry about junk emails clogging your mailboxes every now and then, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with every semi-dedicated server account. Our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and you can choose one of the 5 levels of security – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, authentic emails get filtered, or if spam messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be forwarded to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can go through them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t missed out on a genuine email message.
