Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may be swindled. This is the reason why numerous email providers rely on spam filters, which are software applications that monitor all inbound emails and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message consists of and how many times they’re mentioned, what web site a certain hyperlink points to, what SMTP email server the email message comes from, and so on. Certain companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unasked-for messages, to make certain that their customers will not get any email in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting package from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several mouse clicks, you can choose between 5 different levels of security. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of each email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom filters and either get rid of unsolicited emails or send them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can examine them again afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use one of our semi-dedicated servers, you will not need to worry about junk email messages clogging your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks and you can choose any of the five protection levels – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, genuine messages get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk emails go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be re-sent to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can go through them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t omitted an authentic email.
