Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may be tricked. That’s why, numerous mail service providers use spam filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message contains and how often they are cited, what website a particular link opens, what outgoing server the email comes from, and so on. Some web hosts also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about undesired email messages, to make certain that their customers will not get any email message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting plan from our company and if you use our mail services, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than several clicks of the mouse, you can pick between 5 separate security levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email or allows it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to activate custom filters and either get rid of undesired email messages or redirect them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can examine them again afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you will not have to worry about unsolicited bulk messages stuffing your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated account. Our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with a couple of clicks and you can select any of the 5 levels of security – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any moment if, for example, authentic emails get blocked, or if spam email messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be redirected to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to ensure that you haven’t missed a genuine message.
