Most email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may get ripped off. That’s the reason why a lot of mail service providers resort to spam filters, which are applications that keep track of all incoming email messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email message includes and how often they’re mentioned, what website a given link leads to, what email server the email message is sent from, and so on. Some companies also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unrequested messages, to make certain that their clients will not receive any message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Hosting

Our hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every hosting package, so if you host your domains with us, you can pick one of the 5 security levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the content of each email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you’ve opted for. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the emails that the spam filter considers as spam should be erased or delivered to some other email address where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting a genuine email. Switching to a different level or deactivating the spam protection is also exceptionally easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with top-of-the-line spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which classifies all incoming emails based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between five separate safety levels – from very high to very low. If you still get spam messages, you can raise the level, or if authentic messages are reported as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased momentarily or if they should be redirected to a designated mailbox where you can view them at a later time, so as to make sure that the emails that you need will not get lost.
