Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may be swindled. For this reason, many email service providers resort to email filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email contains and how many times they are cited, what website a specific hyperlink redirects to, what mail server the email comes from, etc. Some hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about undesired email messages, to make sure that their clients won’t get any email message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The safety of any email account that you set up in a cloud hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five safety levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every message in accordance with different criteria, such as the recurrence of specific words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam emails, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may skip an authentic email, you can mix the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a certain sender to some other email account. If you decide that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a given mailbox, you can deactivate it with no more than several clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you won’t have to worry about junk messages cramming your mailboxes all the time, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks of the mouse and you can select one of the five levels of safety – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, genuine email messages get blocked, or if junk emails go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be redirected to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to make sure that you haven’t missed out on a legitimate message.
