Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – undesired messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. That’s why, lots of mail service providers rely on spam filters, which are software apps that monitor all incoming messages and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email contains and how often they’re referred to, what website a particular hyperlink redirects to, what SMTP mail server the message comes from, and so on. Some web hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unrequested email messages, to make sure that their clients won’t receive any message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every shared web hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the 5 levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the body of each and every email message, gives it a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you’ve opted for. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the email messages that the anti-spam filter reports as spam should be erased or redirected to a different mailbox where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting a genuine email. Switching to a different level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also amazingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages provide first-class anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all incoming email messages based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between five different safety levels – from very high to very low. If you still receive unsolicited bulk email messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine emails are reported as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased right away or if they should be delivered to a chosen email address where you can examine them at a later time, so as to make certain that the messages that you need won’t disappear.
