Most emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may be scammed. That’s why, lots of email providers make use of spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how often they are cited, what web site a specific hyperlink points to, what outbound SMTP server the email message comes from, etc. Certain hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unwanted messages, to make certain that their clients won’t get any email in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every shared web hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can opt for one of the 5 safety levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header and the body of each message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have selected. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the emails that the anti-spam filter labels as spam should be deleted or redirected to some other email account where you can read them at a later time, so as to avoid deleting an authentic email. Switching to a different level or disabling the protection is also very 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 domain names hosted under your account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unwanted emails out of your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also adjust the protection level with a few clicks if junk emails still appear in your mailbox or the anti-spam filter starts removing legitimate email messages. As you can choose if the spam should be erased immediately or re-sent to a separate email account, you can set up, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit an email that you need. The email messages that the filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
