Most of the email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be duped. This is why, lots of email service providers make use of email filters, which are software applications that monitor all incoming emails and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how often they’re mentioned, what website a given hyperlink redirects to, what mail server the message is sent from, etc. Certain web hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about undesired email messages, to make sure that their customers won’t receive any message in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

In case you decide to host your domains with our company and you pick any of our Linux shared packages, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any email account that you set up. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up 5 separate levels of security. If you still receive spam messages or the filters start preventing authentic emails from entering your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam filtering solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular email filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk missing a legitimate email that may be blocked as spam because of its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and redirect the emails to a different email account where you can examine them at a later time.

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 domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all undesired emails out of your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you wish. You can also fine-tune the safety level with several mouse clicks if junk messages continue to appear in your inbox or the email filter begins erasing authentic emails. Since you can choose if the spam should be deleted momentarily or forwarded to another email account, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you will not omit an email that you require. The emails that the filter permits to go through will still be received in your mailbox.
