Most of the email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may be conned. Because of this, lots of email service providers resort to spam filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound email messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email contains and how often they are referred to, what website a particular hyperlink points to, what outbound SMTP email server the message comes from, etc. Certain web hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about unasked-for email messages, to ensure that their clients won’t get any message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting plan from our company and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a few mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 separate levels of safety. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of each email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given message or allows it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to activate custom filters and either erase undesired messages or forward them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can view them once again at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to use the mail service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you can keep all unasked-for emails away from your mailbox by enabling the five-level spam protection service that we provide with each package. This can be accomplished through the feature-packed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we rely on the powerful SpamAssassin email filter to make certain that we offer the very best possible security for our customers. You can have a different protection level for each email account and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased or redirected to a different email address where you can check them later so as to ensure that you won’t lose genuine emails. Switching to another protection level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and takes a couple of clicks.
