Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may get duped. Because of this, a lot of email service providers make use of spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email message consists of and how many times they’re mentioned, what site a given hyperlink leads to, what SMTP email server the message comes from, and so on. Certain hosting companies also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unwanted messages, to make sure that their clients will not receive any email message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every web hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the 5 levels of safety that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve picked. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose whether the messages that the anti-spam filter classifies as spam should be erased or delivered to some other email address where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate message. Changing the level or deactivating the spam protection is also surprisingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in the account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all undesired messages out of 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 whenever you wish. You can also change the level of protection with a couple of mouse clicks if unsolicited bulk messages continue to reach your mailbox or the spam filter begins erasing legitimate email messages. As you can select whether the spam should be erased right away or delivered to a separate mailbox, you can create, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you will not miss a message that you require. The email messages that the filter allows to go through will still be received in your inbox.
