Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may get ripped off. That is why, lots of email providers rely on spam filters, which are apps that keep track of all inbound emails and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email message includes and how many times they’re referred to, what web site a specific hyperlink leads to, what outgoing SMTP server the email message is sent from, and so on. Certain web hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about undesired email messages, to ensure that their clients will not get any email message in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you order a cloud web hosting plan from our company and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to enable 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 only a few mouse clicks, you can pick between five different protection levels. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most famous email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of every email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom filters and either delete unasked-for email messages or send them to a 3rd-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can examine them once more afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you won’t have to worry about spam emails cramming your mailboxes all the time, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated server account. Our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks and you can select one of the 5 safety levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, authentic email messages get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be redirected to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. Thus, you can go through them from time to time to ensure that you haven’t missed an authentic email.
