Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may get swindled. Because of this, many email service providers resort to email filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how often they’re referred to, what web site a certain link leads to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the message is sent from, etc. Some hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unsolicited email messages, to make sure that their clients won’t receive any email in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every shared web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the 5 levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the body of each message, calculates a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you’ve opted for. Each email account can have a different setting and you can choose whether the emails that the filter flags as spam should be erased or redirected to some other mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also astonishingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use one of our semi-dedicated plans, you will not have to worry about spam messages stuffing your mailboxes every now and then, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with a few clicks and you can choose any of the 5 levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, genuine email messages get filtered, or if spam emails go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be re-sent to a special mailbox like and not to be deleted. Thus, you can examine them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t omitted a legitimate email message.
