Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may get conned. That is why, a lot of mail service providers make use of spam filters, which are software apps that keep track of all incoming messages and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email message includes and how many times they are cited, what web site a given hyperlink opens, what mail server the email comes from, and so on. Some providers also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unsolicited messages, to make certain that their clients won’t get any message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each cloud web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can opt for one of the five safety levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the content of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have opted for. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the emails that the spam filter considers as spam should be deleted or forwarded to another email address where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the protection is also really easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted in your account, you will be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited messages out of your inbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any moment. You can also alter the level of security with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case junk messages continue to enter your mailbox or the filter starts deleting legitimate messages. As you can select if the spam should be deleted immediately or forwarded to another email address, you can create, for example, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you will not omit an email message that you need. The email messages that the email filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
