Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. undesired messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may be tricked. That is why, many mail service providers resort to email filters, which are applications that keep track of all inbound messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how often they are referred to, what website a certain hyperlink points to, what outgoing email server the message is sent from, and so on. Some hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unsolicited messages, to ensure that their customers won’t get any email message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

If you get a shared web hosting plan from our company and if you use our email services, you will be able to enable spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a few clicks, you can select between five different protection levels. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each and every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific message or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom spam filters and either eliminate undesirable email messages or redirect them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once again at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under your account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all unwanted email messages out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you want. You can also change the level of security with several mouse clicks if junk messages still reach your inbox or the spam filter starts removing genuine emails. Since you can choose whether the spam should be deleted straight away or re-sent to another mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you will not miss a message that you need. The email messages that the spam filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
