Most of the email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may be swindled. That is why, plenty of email service providers rely on email filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound messages and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email contains and how often they’re referred to, what website a given link opens, what outbound mail server the email message is sent from, etc. Some web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unwelcome emails, to make certain that their clients will not receive any message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

The security of any email account that you create under a web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to each and every email in accordance with different parameters, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam emails, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may skip a legitimate email message, you can combine the automated spam filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a specific sender to a separate email account. If you decide that you no longer require an email filter for a specific email account, you can deactivate it with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted under your account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all undesirable messages away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox at any moment. You can also tweak the security level with a couple of mouse clicks if junk emails still enter your inbox or the filter begins erasing authentic email messages. As you can choose if the spam should be deleted momentarily or re-sent to another email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you won’t omit an email message that you need. The messages that the filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
