Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may get conned. Because of this, a lot of mail service providers use email filters, which are software applications that keep track of all incoming emails and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how many times they’re cited, what website a particular link points to, what outgoing mail server the message is sent from, and so on. Certain hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unasked-for messages, to make sure that their clients won’t get any email message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up under a web hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of protection based on the spam score given to each and every email message depending on various criteria, such as the frequency of certain words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may omit an authentic message, you can mix the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a particular sender to a separate email address. If you decide that you no longer need an email filter for a particular mailbox, you can disable it with just a few clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all undesired messages out of your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any moment. You can also configure the level of protection with a few mouse clicks in case unsolicited bulk email messages continue to enter your mailbox or the spam filter starts removing legitimate emails. As you can select if the spam should be deleted instantaneously or redirected to a separate mailbox, you can create, for example, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you will not omit an email message that you require. The messages that the email filter allows to go through will still be received in your mailbox.
