Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. Because of this, numerous email providers use spam filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound emails and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email consists of and how often they are mentioned, what website a given hyperlink points to, what server the email message comes from, etc. Some web hosts also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unasked-for email messages, to make certain that their clients will not get any message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you order a hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of mouse clicks, you can select between five different protection levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of every email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email message or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom filters and either delete undesired email messages or forward them to a 3rd-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them once more after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you use one of our semi-dedicated servers, you will not have to worry about junk emails clogging your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin filter that we provide with every semi-dedicated account. Our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a few mouse clicks and you can choose any of the five levels of security – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, authentic email messages get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk email messages go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be re-sent to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can examine them every now and then to make sure that you haven’t omitted a legitimate email message.
