Most of the email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may get ripped off. Because of this, plenty of mail service providers rely on spam filters, which are applications that keep track of all incoming emails and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email message consists of and how often they are mentioned, what web site a particular hyperlink redirects to, what outgoing mail server the message comes from, etc. Certain web hosting providers also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about undesirable email messages, to ensure that their customers will not get any email in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you create in a shared hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five levels of protection based on the spam score given to each and every email in accordance with different parameters, such as the frequency of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting spam emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may omit an authentic email message, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a certain sender to a different email address. If you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a certain mailbox, you can deactivate it with no more than a few clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with top-level spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which ranks all inbound emails on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between 5 separate safety levels – from very low to very high. If you still get spam, you can increase the level, or if genuine messages are mistaken for spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be redirected to a designated mailbox where you can review them later, so as to make certain that the emails that you need won’t disappear.
