Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may get duped. That’s the reason why many email service providers resort to spam filters, which are applications that monitor all inbound messages and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how many times they are referred to, what site a specific link points to, what email server the email message is sent from, and so on. Some hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unasked-for emails, to ensure that their clients will not receive any message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers rely on one of the very best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the five levels of protection that the filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the body of every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have opted for. Each email account can have a different setting and you can select whether the emails that the spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a different email account where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing a genuine email message. Changing the level or disabling the spam protection is also amazingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under the account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all undesirable emails away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you want. You can also alter the level of security with several clicks in case junk messages continue to appear in your mailbox or the anti-spam filter starts erasing genuine messages. Since you can select whether the spam should be erased straight away or re-sent to a different mailbox, you can set up, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you won’t omit a message that you need. The messages that the anti-spam filter permits to go through will still be received in your inbox.
