Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get duped. That is the reason why lots of email service providers rely on email filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how many times they are mentioned, what site a given link redirects to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email comes from, and so on. Some hosting providers also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unasked-for messages, to ensure that their clients won’t get any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you set up in a shared website hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of security based on the spam score it gives to each and every email in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may omit a genuine message, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a certain sender to some other email address. In case you decide that you no longer want an email filter for a given mailbox, you can deactivate it with only a couple of mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted under the account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unwanted emails away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any time. You can also fine-tune the level of safety with a couple of mouse clicks if junk emails continue to appear in your mailbox or the anti-spam filter begins removing authentic emails. As you can select if the spam should be deleted instantly or redirected to a different mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you will not miss an email that you need. The emails that the anti-spam filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
