Most of the email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. This is the reason why numerous email service providers make use of email filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email contains and how often they are mentioned, what website a particular link points to, what outgoing mail server the email message is sent from, etc. Certain web hosts also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about undesired email messages, to ensure that their customers will not get any message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you get a hosting plan from us and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a few clicks, you can pick between 5 different safety levels. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each and every email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific email message or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom spam filters and either eliminate undesired emails or send them to a 3rd-party address such as where you can check them once again at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with top-of-the-line spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of particular keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any mailbox through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between 5 separate security levels – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving spam, you can raise the level, or if genuine messages are blocked as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted right away or if they should be redirected to a chosen mailbox where you can read them at a later time, so as to ensure that valuable messages won’t get lost.
