Most of the email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be duped. Because of this, a lot of mail service providers rely on spam filters, which are apps that monitor all incoming emails and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how often they are mentioned, what web site a certain hyperlink opens, what email server the message comes from, etc. Certain hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unwanted messages, to make sure that their customers will not receive any email message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you set up under a shared hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five security levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every email depending on various criteria, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk messages, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may omit an authentic email message, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to some other mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a given email account, you can disable it with only a couple of clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in the account, you will be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all undesired email messages away from your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you wish. You can also configure the security level with a couple of mouse clicks in case spam messages continue to reach your mailbox or the spam filter begins removing genuine email messages. As you can choose if the spam should be erased instantly or redirected to a different mailbox, you can set up, for example, and check all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t miss a message that you require. The emails that the spam filter allows to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
