Most emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may be conned. Because of this, a lot of email service providers use spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how many times they are cited, what website a specific hyperlink points to, what outbound email server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about undesirable messages, to make certain that their customers won’t get any email message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you set up in a website hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five security levels based on the spam score given to every message depending on different parameters, such as the frequency of specific words, the sender, etc. If you keep getting spam messages, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may skip a legitimate email, you can combine the automated filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a given sender to a separate email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer want a spam filter for a given email account, you can disable it with only several mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated plans, you will not need to worry about unsolicited bulk messages 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 account. Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with several clicks and you can select any of the five security levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, genuine messages get blocked, or if spam emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be re-sent to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can check them every now and then to ensure that you have not missed out on a genuine email.
