Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be duped. That’s why, lots of mail service providers use email filters, which are software applications that keep track of all incoming email messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how many times they’re mentioned, what site a specific link redirects to, what outbound email server the message comes from, etc. Certain web hosting providers also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unrequested email messages, to make certain that their customers won’t get any email in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers employ one of the very best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the five safety levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the body of each and every email message, gives it a spam score and then continues based on the level that you’ve chosen. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose whether the email messages that the spam filter marks as spam should be erased or redirected to another email account where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing an authentic email. Switching to another level or deactivating the spam protection is also quite easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use one of our semi-dedicated servers, you won’t have to worry about unsolicited bulk emails stuffing your mailboxes all the time, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks and you can select one of the 5 levels of safety – from very high to very low.

To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be delivered to a special mailbox such as and not to be deleted. In this way, you can check them every now and then to make sure that you have not missed a legitimate email message.
