Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – undesirable messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get duped. This is the reason why a lot of email providers make use of email filters, which are apps that monitor all incoming messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how often they’re referred to, what website a given link leads to, what outbound SMTP mail server the message comes from, and so on. Some providers also make use of the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about unrequested emails, to make sure that their clients won’t get any email message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers employ one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every plan, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can select one of the 5 protection levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header and the body of each email message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have selected. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can choose if the emails that the spam filter flags as spam should be erased or forwarded to another email address where you can check them later, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate email message. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also extremely easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you use one of our semi-dedicated servers, you will not have to worry about unsolicited bulk messages occupying your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we provide with every account. Our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with several mouse clicks and you can pick one of the 5 security levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for instance, genuine messages get filtered, or if spam emails go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be redirected to a special mailbox like and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to ensure that you have not missed out on an authentic message.
