Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. undesirable messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may get ripped off. Because of this, numerous mail service providers use spam filters, which are applications that keep track of all incoming email messages and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message includes and how often they are mentioned, what website a particular hyperlink opens, what mail server the email message comes from, etc. Some companies also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unsolicited email messages, to ensure that their clients will not receive any message in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers use one of the best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each shared web hosting package, so if you host your domains with us, you can pick one of the five safety levels that the filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header and the body of every email, gives it a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you’ve opted for. Every email account can have a different setting and you can select if the emails that the spam filter considers as spam should be erased or forwarded to some other email address where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing a genuine message. Switching to a different level or disabling the spam protection is also unbelievably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unsolicited emails out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account at any time. You can also alter the level of security with several mouse clicks in case spam email messages still reach your inbox or the spam filter begins removing genuine emails. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted instantly or redirected to another email address, you can set up, for example, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t omit an email that you require. The messages that the spam filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
