Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may get tricked. That’s why, numerous mail service providers use spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email contains and how often they’re mentioned, what site a specific link points to, what email server the email message is sent from, etc. Some web hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about unrequested emails, to ensure that their clients won’t get any message 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 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 safety. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most popular email filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to activate custom spam filters and either get rid of unasked-for messages or forward them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted in the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all undesired email messages out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any time. You can also tweak the protection level with a couple of clicks in case unsolicited bulk emails continue to reach your inbox or the spam filter starts deleting legitimate emails. As you can select whether the spam should be erased right away or delivered to a different mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you will not miss an email message that you require. The emails that the filter allows to proceed will still appear in your inbox.
