Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get conned. Because of this, many mail service providers resort to spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email message consists of and how many times they are referred to, what web site a certain link leads to, what outbound SMTP mail server the message is sent from, etc. Certain providers also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unwanted emails, to make sure that their clients will not receive any email message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you order a shared hosting package from our company and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a few mouse clicks, you can choose between five separate protection levels. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email message or allows it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to activate custom spam filters and either get rid of unwelcome emails or re-send them to a 3rd-party address such as where you can examine them again after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use one of our semi-dedicated servers, you won’t need to worry about junk email messages stuffing your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated server account. Our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with several clicks and you can choose any of the 5 security levels – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any moment if, for example, authentic messages get blocked, or if junk email messages go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be re-sent to a special mailbox like and not to be erased. Thus, you can examine them every now and then to ensure that you haven’t omitted a legitimate email message.
