Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – undesirable messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get duped. That is the reason why a lot of email providers use spam filters, which are applications that monitor all inbound emails and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they’re cited, what web site a particular link leads to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email message is sent from, etc. Some web hosts also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unrequested messages, to make sure that their customers won’t receive any email in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you get a web hosting plan from us and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can choose between five separate levels of protection. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email message or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either erase unwanted emails or forward them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can examine them again later.

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 under the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all unsolicited messages away from your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you wish. You can also alter the security level with a couple of clicks in case junk messages still enter your inbox or the filter begins erasing authentic messages. As you can choose if the spam should be erased right away or re-sent to some other email address, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss a message that you need. The emails that the email filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
