Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be swindled. That’s why, plenty of mail service providers make use of email filters, which are applications that keep track of all inbound messages and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message includes and how often they’re mentioned, what website a particular link points to, what outgoing server the email message comes from, etc. Some web hosting providers also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unwanted email messages, to make sure that their customers won’t get any message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting servers use one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the five levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the body of each and every message, gives it a spam score and then continues based on the level that you have opted for. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the anti-spam filter flags as spam should be erased or forwarded to a separate email account where you can examine them at a later time, so as to avoid deleting an authentic message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the protection is also remarkably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages provide top-notch anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which ranks all incoming email messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of specific keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five different security levels – from very low to very high. If you still receive spam emails, you can raise the level, or if legitimate emails are blocked as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased instantly or if they should be forwarded to a designated email address where you can view them later, so as to ensure that important emails won’t disappear.
