Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may be scammed. For this reason, plenty of mail service providers make use of email filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all incoming email messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message includes and how often they’re cited, what website a given link redirects to, what outgoing mail server the email message is sent from, etc. Some providers also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unwelcome email messages, to make certain that their customers will not receive any message in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you order a web hosting package from us and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 separate security levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most popular filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each and every email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email or permits it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also allow you to set up custom email filters and either erase undesired emails or re-send them to a 3rd-party email address such as where you can check them once more after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with first-class spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which classifies all incoming email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between five separate security levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive junk email messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine messages are mistaken for spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased straight away or if they should be redirected to a chosen email address where you can check them at a later time, so as to make certain that valuable email messages will not get lost.
