Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. Because of this, many email providers resort to email filters, which are applications that keep track of all inbound email messages and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how many times they’re cited, what website a specific link opens, what outbound SMTP mail server the message comes from, etc. Some hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about undesirable emails, to make sure that their customers won’t get any email message in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

In case you decide to host your domains with our company and you select any of our website hosting plans, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any email address that you create. With several clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure five different levels of security. In case you still receive unsolicited bulk email messages or the email filters start preventing authentic emails from entering your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam filtering solution is guaranteed by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting an authentic email that may be flagged as spam due to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and redirect the emails to a separate mailbox where you can examine them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted under your account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all undesirable messages away from your inbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also configure the protection level with a couple of mouse clicks in case junk messages continue to appear in your inbox or the spam filter starts removing legitimate email messages. Since you can choose if the spam should be erased right away or delivered to another mailbox, you can create, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t miss an email that you require. The email messages that the email filter permits to proceed will still appear in your mailbox.
