Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may be swindled. That is why, lots of mail service providers make use of spam filters, which are applications that monitor all incoming messages and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how often they’re mentioned, what site a certain link opens, what outgoing email server the message comes from, etc. Some hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unwanted messages, to make certain that their clients will not receive any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you get a web hosting package from us and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a few clicks of the mouse, you can choose between 5 different security levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most popular filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of each email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email message or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to create custom email filters and either eliminate undesired emails or forward them to a 3rd-party address like [email protected] where you can read them again at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans provide excellent spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which ranks all inbound messages based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between 5 different levels – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine emails are classified as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted momentarily or if they should be re-sent to a designated mailbox where you can check them later, so as to ensure that valuable email messages will not get lost.
