Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be swindled. That is the reason why plenty of email providers use spam filters, which are apps that monitor all incoming emails and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message consists of and how many times they are mentioned, what website a particular hyperlink points to, what outgoing server the email comes from, etc. Some web hosts also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unsolicited emails, to ensure that their customers won’t receive any message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers rely on one of the best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every shared web hosting package, so in case you host your domains with us, you can select one of the 5 protection levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the body of every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have chosen. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the messages that the filter considers as spam should be erased or delivered to a separate mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate email. Switching to some other level or deactivating the protection is also quite easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesirable messages out of your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any moment. You can also change the security level with a couple of clicks in case spam messages still enter your inbox or the anti-spam filter begins erasing genuine email messages. Since you can select whether the spam should be deleted right away or forwarded to another email account, you can create, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss an email message that you need. The email messages that the filter allows to go through will still be received in your mailbox.
