Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may be duped. That’s the reason why a lot of mail service providers make use of spam filters, which are software applications that keep track of all inbound emails and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how many times they are mentioned, what site a certain link points to, what SMTP email server the message is sent from, etc. Some web hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unsolicited emails, to ensure that their customers won’t receive any email in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each shared hosting package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can opt for one of the five safety levels that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the content of every message, gives it a spam score and then continues based on the level that you have picked. Every email account can have a different level and you can choose whether the email messages that the filter classifies as spam should be erased or re-sent to a separate mailbox where you can view them later, so as to prevent erasing a genuine email. Changing the level or deactivating the protection is also astonishingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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 domains hosted under your account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all undesirable email messages out of your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account at any moment. You can also fine-tune the level of protection with several mouse clicks in case spam emails still appear in your mailbox or the email filter starts deleting genuine messages. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted instantaneously or redirected to a separate mailbox, you can set up, for instance, and view all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you won’t omit an email message that you require. The messages that the anti-spam filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
