Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. Because of this, many mail service providers use spam filters, which are applications that keep track of all inbound email messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email contains and how many times they are mentioned, what site a particular hyperlink redirects to, what outgoing server the message comes from, etc. Some companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about unwelcome emails, to ensure that their clients won’t receive any email message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can opt for one of the 5 levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the body of each and every message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have chosen. Each email account can have a different setting and you can select if the email messages that the anti-spam filter reports as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a different email address where you can read them later, so as to prevent erasing an authentic message. Switching to another level or deactivating the protection is also remarkably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you use one of our semi-dedicated servers, you will not need to worry about spam messages stuffing your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with a couple of mouse clicks and you can select any of the five levels of security – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for instance, legitimate emails get blocked, or if spam emails go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be forwarded to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to make certain that you have not missed out on a genuine message.
