Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may get tricked. That’s the reason why plenty of email service providers make use of spam filters, which are software applications that monitor all inbound messages and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email message contains and how often they’re referred to, what web site a specific link opens, what outbound email server the email comes from, and so on. Certain providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unwanted emails, to ensure that their customers will not receive any email in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Hosting

Our hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each shared web hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with us, you can opt for one of the five protection levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the body of every message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have picked. Every email account can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the filter marks as spam should be deleted or re-sent to another email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing a genuine message. Changing the level or disabling the protection is also quite easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans deliver top-level spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which classifies all incoming emails based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between 5 separate levels of protection – from very high to very low. If you continue to get spam email messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic emails are reported as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted immediately or if they should be forwarded to a chosen mailbox where you can check them later, so as to ensure that important messages will not disappear.
