Most of the email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may be scammed. Because of this, plenty of mail service providers rely on email filters, which are applications that keep track of all inbound email messages and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email consists of and how often they are referred to, what web site a certain link leads to, what email server the email comes from, and so on. Certain providers also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about unwanted messages, to make certain that their customers won’t get any email message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every shared web hosting plan, so if you host your domains with us, you can pick one of the 5 levels of protection that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve chosen. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose whether the emails that the anti-spam filter considers as spam should be deleted or redirected to a different email address where you can check them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate email message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also extremely easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated hosting, you will not have to worry about spam emails occupying your mailboxes all the time, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks of the mouse and you can choose one of the 5 levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, authentic email messages get filtered, or if spam emails go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be forwarded to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can go through them from time to time to ensure that you have not omitted a genuine email message.
