Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. undesirable messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. Because of this, many email providers resort to spam filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how many times they’re cited, what website a particular link leads to, what outbound SMTP mail server the email is sent from, etc. Certain companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unwelcome messages, to make certain that their clients won’t receive any message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you order a shared hosting package from our company and if you use our mail services, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a few clicks of the mouse, you can select between five different levels of safety. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of each email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email message or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either get rid of unwanted messages or send them to a 3rd-party email address like where you can examine them again after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to make use of the mail service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you can keep all unasked-for messages away from your mailbox by enabling the five-level anti-spam protection service that we provide with every semi-dedicated hosting plan. This can be accomplished via the feature-stuffed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the powerful SpamAssassin filter to make sure that we offer the very best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different protection level for each email account and you can select whether the filtered email messages should be erased or redirected to a separate email account where you can examine them at a later point in time so as to make sure that you won’t omit genuine emails. Switching to a different level or deactivating the protection is also easy and takes a few clicks.
