Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may get duped. That’s why, lots of mail service providers rely on email filters, which are software applications that keep track of all inbound messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how often they’re mentioned, what website a particular hyperlink opens, what outbound SMTP mail server the message comes from, and so on. Certain web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unrequested messages, to make certain that their clients will not receive any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting plan from us and if you use our mail services, you will be able to set up spam filters for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few clicks, you can choose between five different levels of protection. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most famous filters out there called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of every email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom spam filters and either erase unsolicited email messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can double-check them afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you reach the decision to use the email service that comes with our semi-dedicated hosting service, you can keep all unsolicited messages away from your mailbox by activating the five-level anti-spam protection that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated server plan. This can be achieved through the fully featured Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we employ the powerful SpamAssassin email filter to make sure that we offer the very best possible security for our customers. You can have a different anti-spam level for each mailbox and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be erased or re-sent to another mailbox where you can check them at a later time in order to make certain that you won’t miss genuine email messages. Changing the level or disabling the protection is also easy and requires several clicks.
