Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. undesired messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may be tricked. That’s why, lots of email service providers make use of email filters, which are software applications that keep track of all inbound emails and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email message contains and how often they are mentioned, what site a given link leads to, what email server the email is sent from, etc. Some hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about undesirable emails, to make certain that their customers will not get any message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Hosting

Our hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every cloud web hosting plan, so if you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the 5 security levels that the filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header and the body of every message, gives it a spam score and then continues based on the level that you’ve chosen. Each email account can have a different setting and you can select if the emails that the filter marks as spam should be erased or delivered to some other mailbox where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate email message. Switching to another level or disabling the protection is also remarkably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you will not have to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages filling up your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks and you can select any of the five levels of security – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, legitimate messages get filtered, or if spam messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be redirected to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can go through them every now and then to ensure that you haven’t omitted a legitimate email message.
