Most email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. That’s the reason why a lot of mail service providers make use of spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound email messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email contains and how many times they are cited, what web site a given hyperlink redirects to, what server the email message comes from, and so on. Certain companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unwanted email messages, to ensure that their customers won’t get any email message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every cloud web hosting plan, so if you host your domains with us, you can pick one of the 5 levels of safety that the filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the body of each email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have selected. Each email account can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or re-sent to some other email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate message. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also extremely easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages provide top-level anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which ranks all inbound messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five separate security levels – from very low to very high. If you continue to receive spam email messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate email messages are labeled 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 select if the filtered email messages should be erased instantly or if they should be delivered to a designated email address where you can review them at a later time, so as to make sure that important emails won’t get lost.
