Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may be tricked. This is the reason why many mail service providers make use of spam filters, which are apps that monitor all incoming email messages and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email contains and how often they’re referred to, what website a particular link leads to, what email server the message is sent from, etc. Some companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about unwanted email messages, to make certain that their clients will not receive any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you get a website hosting plan from our company and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks, you can pick between 5 different protection levels. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually increase the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given message or allows it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to create custom filters and either erase unasked-for messages or redirect them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can read them again at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited messages away from your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account at any moment. You can also alter the security level with several clicks of the mouse if spam messages still enter your mailbox or the spam filter starts erasing authentic emails. Since you can select whether the spam should be erased right away or re-sent to a separate mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t omit an email message that you require. The messages that the filter allows to proceed will still be received in your mailbox.
