Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. That’s the reason why lots of email service providers rely on spam filters, which are apps that keep track of all incoming email messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how many times they are referred to, what website a particular hyperlink redirects to, what SMTP mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date info about undesirable emails, to make sure that their clients won’t get any email in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you pick any of our shared hosting services, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any email address that you set up. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up five different levels of protection. In case you continue to receive junk messages or the spam filters start preventing genuine messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam service is ensured by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk omitting a genuine email that may be flagged as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the message and re-send the emails to another email address where you can review them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you use one of our semi-dedicated services, you will not need to worry about spam messages occupying your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with several clicks of the mouse and you can select one of the 5 security levels – from very low to very high.

To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be delivered to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. Thus, you can go through them every now and then to make certain that you haven’t missed a legitimate message.
