Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – undesirable messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may be tricked. For this reason, plenty of email service providers use spam filters, which are applications that keep track of all inbound email messages and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email contains and how many times they are mentioned, what site a certain hyperlink leads to, what email server the message comes from, and so on. Some providers also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unsolicited messages, to make sure that their customers won’t receive any email message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you set up under a hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five levels of safety based on the spam score given to every email depending on various criteria, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may omit a genuine message, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a certain sender to a separate email account. If you decide that you no longer require an email filter for a given mailbox, you can disable it with only several clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated plans, you won’t have to worry about junk messages filling up your mailboxes all the time, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with a few clicks of the mouse and you can choose any of the five safety levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, genuine emails get blocked, or if spam messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be forwarded to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can check them every now and then to make sure that you have not missed an authentic email.
