Most of the email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. undesired messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may be scammed. For this reason, a lot of email service providers resort to spam filters, which are software applications that monitor all inbound email messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how many times they are referred to, what site a given link opens, what outbound SMTP server the message is sent from, and so on. Certain web hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about unwanted messages, to ensure that their customers won’t receive any email message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks of the mouse, you can choose between 5 different protection levels. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of each and every message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific message or permits it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also allow you to configure custom filters and either eliminate unsolicited email messages or send them to a 3rd-party address such as where you can view them again afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to use the email service that is offered with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all undesired messages out of your mailbox by activating the 5-level spam protection that we offer with each and every plan. This can be achieved via the fully featured Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we rely on the advanced SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we offer the very best possible security for our clients. You can have a different anti-spam level for each mailbox and you can choose whether the filtered emails should be deleted or forwarded to a different email address where you can check them at a later time in order to make sure that you will not miss authentic emails. Changing the level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and takes several clicks of the mouse.
