Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may be scammed. That is the reason why plenty of email providers rely on email filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they are cited, what website a given link points to, what outgoing mail server the email comes from, etc. Certain hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about unwanted emails, to ensure that their clients will not receive any message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can choose one of the 5 levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with only two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the body of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have opted for. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose whether the emails that the spam filter flags as spam should be deleted or forwarded to some other email address where you can review them at a later time, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate message. Switching to some other level or disabling the protection is also very easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated services, you won’t need to worry about junk messages cramming your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with each account. Our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks and you can select any of the five levels of security – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, legitimate email messages get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk emails go through and appear in your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be redirected to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can go through them from time to time to ensure that you haven’t missed a genuine message.
