Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get ripped off. That is the reason why plenty of mail service providers use spam filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all incoming email messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they are mentioned, what web site a particular hyperlink redirects to, what outgoing mail server the email message is sent from, etc. Certain companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about unrequested email messages, to make sure that their customers won’t receive any email in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you get a cloud website hosting package from us and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than several clicks, you can pick between five separate levels of safety. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of every email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific email message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom email filters and either get rid of unwelcome email messages or send them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once more after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated servers, you will not need to worry about junk email messages occupying your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated server account. Our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with several clicks and you can select any of the 5 levels of security – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, genuine messages get blocked, or if junk email messages go through and appear in your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be delivered to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t omitted a genuine email message.
