Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may be tricked. This is the reason why a lot of email service providers make use of spam filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message consists of and how many times they are mentioned, what site a specific link leads to, what outbound SMTP email server the email is sent from, etc. Some web hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unsolicited emails, to make certain that their customers will not get any email in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than several clicks, you can pick between five separate protection levels. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most famous spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header and the body of each email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email message or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom filters and either get rid of undesired messages or send them to a 3rd-party email address like where you can examine them once again at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages provide top-of-the-line anti-spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which ranks all incoming email messages based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five different protection levels – from very high to very low. If you still receive spam email messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate emails are mistaken for spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as two mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be forwarded to a designated email account where you can examine them later, so as to make sure that the messages that you need will not get lost.
