Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may get conned. This is why, lots of mail service providers make use of email filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound email messages and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message includes and how many times they are cited, what web site a specific link leads to, what email server the email message comes from, and so on. Some hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unrequested emails, to ensure that their clients won’t get any email in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you order a shared hosting package from us and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than several clicks, you can pick between five different protection levels. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of every email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom filters and either erase unasked-for emails or redirect them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can examine them once again at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated servers, you will not have to worry about spam email messages filling up your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with a few clicks of the mouse and you can select any of the 5 protection levels – from very low to very high.
