Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – undesired messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may get ripped off. That is why, a lot of email providers use spam filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email message consists of and how often they are referred to, what web site a given hyperlink points to, what SMTP email server the message comes from, etc. Some web hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date information about undesired emails, to make sure that their customers will not get any email in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting package from us and if you use our email services, you will be able to enable spam filters for any of the mailboxes 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 five different levels of security. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific email message or permits it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also permit you to create custom spam filters and either eliminate unwanted email messages or forward them to a third-party email address such as where you can examine them once more afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages provide excellent spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which sorts all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of particular keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between five different safety levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to get unsolicited bulk messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic email messages are labeled as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered email messages should be erased momentarily or if they should be delivered to a chosen email account where you can view them later, so as to ensure that the emails that you need will not get lost.
