Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. undesired messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may get swindled. That’s the reason why plenty of email providers use spam filters, which are software applications that keep track of all inbound email messages 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 cited, what website a certain hyperlink leads to, what outbound SMTP email server the email message comes from, and so on. Some hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unrequested messages, to make sure that their clients won’t get any email message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers use one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every shared web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can select one of the five levels of safety that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header and the content of each email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have chosen. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose whether the messages that the spam filter labels as spam should be erased or re-sent to some other email address where you can view them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also stunningly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you reach the decision to use the email service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you can keep all unsolicited messages away from your mailbox by activating the five-level spam protection service that we provide with every semi-dedicated plan. This can be done via the feature-packed Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we rely on the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter to make certain that we provide the very best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different anti-spam level for each email account and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased or forwarded to a different email address where you can view them at a later time to make sure that you will not skip authentic messages. Switching to some other protection level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and requires several clicks.
