Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may be swindled. That is why, a lot of email service providers rely on spam filters, which are applications that monitor all incoming emails and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email message includes and how often they are cited, what website a specific hyperlink opens, what SMTP mail server the message comes from, etc. Certain companies also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about undesirable email messages, to make certain that their clients will not get any message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you select any of our shared hosting service, you’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any mailbox that you create. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure five different protection levels. In case you continue to get junk messages or the email filters start preventing genuine email messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam solution is ensured by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk missing a genuine email that may be flagged as spam due to its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to a different mailbox where you can read them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers, you will not need to worry about unsolicited bulk emails filling up your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with a few clicks of the mouse and you can select one of the five levels of security – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, legitimate email messages get blocked, or if junk emails go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be delivered to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can check them every now and then to make sure that you haven’t missed a genuine message.
