Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – unasked-for 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 get swindled. That is the reason why many mail service providers rely on email filters, which are software applications that monitor all incoming messages and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how many times they’re cited, what website a specific hyperlink redirects to, what outgoing mail server the email comes from, and so on. Certain web hosts also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unrequested email messages, to make certain that their clients will not get any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

The safety of any email account that you set up under a web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of security based on the spam score it gives to each message depending on various parameters, such as the recurrence of given words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting spam email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may omit a legitimate message, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a particular sender to a separate mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a given email account, you can deactivate it with just a few mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted in the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unsolicited emails out of your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any moment. You can also alter the level of security with a few mouse clicks if junk emails still appear in your inbox or the anti-spam filter starts removing legitimate email messages. Since you can choose if the spam should be erased instantaneously or delivered to a different email address, you can create, for example, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you will not omit an email that you need. The email messages that the spam filter permits to go through will still appear in your mailbox.
