Most emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. This is why, many mail service providers use spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message contains and how often they are referred to, what website a specific hyperlink redirects to, what SMTP mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unrequested emails, to make certain that their customers won’t receive any email in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every cloud hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can opt for one of the 5 protection levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the body of every message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve selected. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose whether the messages that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or redirected to another email account where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email. Switching to a different level or deactivating the spam protection is also incredibly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted under your account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unwanted email messages out of your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also tweak the safety level with several clicks if unsolicited bulk messages continue to reach your mailbox or the spam filter begins erasing genuine email messages. As you can choose if the spam should be erased right away or delivered to another mailbox, you can set up, for example, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t miss a message that you require. The email messages that the email filter permits to proceed will still appear in your inbox.
