Most of the email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with various 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 be ripped off. This is the reason why many email service providers make use of spam filters, which are applications that monitor all incoming messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email message consists of and how many times they’re cited, what website a specific link points to, what outbound mail server the message is sent from, etc. Some web hosts also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unsolicited emails, to make sure that their customers will not get any message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting package from our company and if you use our email services, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than several clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 separate protection levels. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular email filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each and every email that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email message or allows it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also permit you to configure custom email filters and either eliminate undesired emails or re-send them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can check them once again at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with top-class anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which sorts all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of specific keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any account through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five different levels of safety – from very high to very low. If you continue to get junk emails, you can raise the level, or if legitimate email messages are blocked as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased immediately or if they should be forwarded to a chosen mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to make sure that the messages that you need won’t disappear.
