Most of the emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get duped. This is why, plenty of email providers rely on spam filters, which are apps that keep track of all inbound messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email consists of and how often they are referred to, what site a certain link redirects to, what SMTP email server the email message is sent from, etc. Certain web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about undesired email messages, to make certain that their clients won’t get any email in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any of the mailboxes 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 choose between five different safety levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of each and every email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom spam filters and either erase unwanted emails or redirect them to a 3rd-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can check them again after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t need to worry about junk messages cramming your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a few clicks and you can pick any of the five safety levels – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any moment if, for example, authentic email messages get blocked, or if junk emails go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, 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 erased. In this way, you can go through them every now and then to make certain that you haven’t missed out on an authentic email message.
