Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be conned. That is why, lots of email providers resort to spam filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how many times they are referred to, what site a specific hyperlink redirects to, what outbound SMTP mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain web hosts also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about unrequested emails, to ensure that their customers won’t receive any email message in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers rely on one of the very best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with every package, so if you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the five safety levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header section and the content of each email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have picked. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can choose whether the email messages that the spam filter reports as spam should be deleted or re-sent to a different email account where you can review them later, so as to avoid deleting an authentic email. Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also exceptionally easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited messages away from your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you like. You can also adjust the protection level with a few clicks of the mouse in case unsolicited bulk messages continue to appear in your inbox or the email filter begins deleting genuine email messages. Since you can select if the spam should be erased momentarily or forwarded to another mailbox, you can create, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you will not omit an email message that you need. The emails that the anti-spam filter permits to go through will still appear in your mailbox.
