Most of the email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may be conned. This is why, many email service providers use spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all incoming email messages and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email contains and how many times they’re cited, what site a certain hyperlink redirects to, what outbound mail server the email message is sent from, etc. Some providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unwelcome email messages, to make sure that their customers will not receive any message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each cloud web hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the 5 levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the content of each email, calculates a spam score and then continues according to the level that you’ve picked. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the emails that the spam filter labels as spam should be deleted or forwarded to some other email account where you can check them later, so as to avoid erasing an authentic email. Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also very easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in your account, you will be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unwanted emails out of your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox at any moment. You can also configure the security level with a couple of mouse clicks in case junk emails continue to appear in your mailbox or the spam filter begins deleting genuine emails. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted straight away or redirected to a different mailbox, you can create, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you will not omit an email that you require. The email messages that the spam filter allows to proceed will still be delivered to your mailbox.
