Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get conned. That’s why, a lot of email service providers use spam filters, which are software apps that keep track of all inbound email messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how many times they’re referred to, what web site a particular hyperlink leads to, what mail server the email comes from, etc. Certain hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about unasked-for emails, to ensure that their clients will not receive any message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers rely on one of the best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can select one of the five levels of safety that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the content of each and every email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have opted for. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the messages that the spam filter labels as spam should be deleted or delivered to some other email address where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing a genuine email message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also astonishingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans offer top-class anti-spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which rates all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of specific keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between five separate security levels – from very high to very low. If you still get unsolicited bulk emails, you can raise the level, or if genuine email messages are reported as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased instantaneously or if they should be delivered to a chosen email address where you can examine them at a later time, so as to ensure that valuable email messages won’t disappear.
