Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. That is why, numerous email providers use email filters, which are software applications that keep track of all inbound emails and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email contains and how many times they’re referred to, what website a specific hyperlink redirects to, what outbound SMTP server the email comes from, etc. Certain hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about unsolicited messages, to ensure that their clients won’t get any message in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting package from our company and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just several mouse clicks, you can choose between five different protection levels. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most popular email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of every email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to create custom filters and either erase unwelcome messages or forward them to a 3rd-party address like where you can read them again afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts provide top-class spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which classifies all inbound messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between 5 different protection levels – from very high to very low. If you still get spam, you can increase the level, or if authentic emails are tagged 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 select if the filtered email messages should be erased momentarily or if they should be delivered to a chosen mailbox where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that the email messages that you need will not get lost.
