Most emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get duped. That is why, numerous email service providers make use of spam filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how many times they are cited, what web site a specific hyperlink redirects to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email comes from, etc. Some providers also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unwanted email messages, to make certain that their customers won’t get any email message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you set up under a shared web hosting account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five safety levels based on the spam score given to each and every message depending on different parameters, such as the recurrence of given words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may miss a legitimate message, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a particular sender to some other email account. If you decide that you no longer require a spam filter for a certain email account, you can disable it with just several mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unwanted emails away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you want. You can also configure the level of safety with a few clicks of the mouse in case spam email messages still enter your mailbox or the spam filter begins removing genuine email messages. As you can choose whether the spam should be deleted instantly or redirected to a separate email account, you can set up, for example, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you will not miss an email that you need. The messages that the email filter permits to go through will still be received in your inbox.
