Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. Because of this, many email providers rely on spam filters, which are software apps that keep track of all inbound emails and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how many times they are cited, what website a given link opens, what SMTP mail server the email message comes from, etc. Some companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unwelcome messages, to ensure that their customers will not receive any email message in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting plan from our company and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a couple of clicks, you can choose between five different security levels. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most famous email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header and the body of every email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email message or permits it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to activate custom spam filters and either erase unwelcome emails or redirect them to a 3rd-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once again at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with top-class spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all incoming email messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between 5 separate security levels – from very low to very high. If you continue to get spam emails, you can raise the level, or if genuine email messages are classified as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased straight away or if they should be delivered to a chosen mailbox where you can check them later, so as to ensure that important messages won’t get lost.
