Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be conned. That’s why, lots of mail service providers resort to email filters, which are software applications that keep track of all incoming emails and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message consists of and how often they’re cited, what web site a certain link leads to, what outgoing email server the email message comes from, etc. Certain hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about undesired messages, to ensure that their clients won’t receive any email message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers use one of the best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each shared hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the 5 levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header and the body of every email message, gives it a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you have chosen. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the messages that the spam filter considers as spam should be erased or re-sent to a separate mailbox where you can examine them at a later time, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate email. Switching to some other level or disabling the protection is also amazingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted in your account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unwanted emails out of your inbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you wish. You can also change the level of security with several mouse clicks if spam email messages continue to appear in your inbox or the spam filter starts erasing genuine messages. As you can choose whether the spam should be deleted instantaneously or re-sent to some other email address, you can create, for instance, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t miss a message that you need. The email messages that the anti-spam filter permits to go through will still appear in your inbox.
