Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may be scammed. That’s why, a lot of email service providers rely on email filters, which are apps that keep track of all incoming messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how many times they are referred to, what website a certain hyperlink points to, what SMTP email server the email comes from, etc. Some web hosts also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about unrequested messages, to ensure that their clients won’t receive any message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you get a hosting package from our company and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks, you can choose between 5 separate levels of security. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom filters and either get rid of undesirable emails or send them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can check them once more afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted under your account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all unwanted emails away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also change the level of security with a couple of clicks of the mouse if junk emails still reach your inbox or the spam filter starts deleting legitimate emails. As you can select if the spam should be erased straight away or delivered to another mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t miss an email message that you require. The messages that the anti-spam filter allows to go through will still be received in your inbox.
