Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. undesirable messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may be scammed. That is why, lots of email providers use spam filters, which are apps that monitor all incoming emails and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how often they’re referred to, what site a given hyperlink opens, what mail server the message comes from, and so on. Certain web hosting providers also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unrequested messages, to make sure that their clients won’t get any email in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

If you get a shared website hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 separate safety levels. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It examines the header and the body of each email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email message or permits it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to set up custom filters and either erase unwelcome emails or re-send them to a third-party address like where you can view them again afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under the account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all undesirable 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 mailbox whenever you like. You can also tweak the protection level with a few mouse clicks in case unsolicited bulk email messages still appear in your inbox or the email filter starts removing legitimate email messages. Since you can choose whether the spam should be deleted right away or forwarded to a different email account, you can set up, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t omit an email message that you require. The emails that the email filter permits to go through will still be received in your inbox.
