Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. That is the reason why numerous email providers resort to spam filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email includes and how many times they are mentioned, what website a given hyperlink leads to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about unsolicited messages, to ensure that their clients won’t receive any email in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with every cloud hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can choose one of the five safety levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the body of each and every email message, calculates a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you have picked. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose whether the messages that the anti-spam filter flags as spam should be deleted or redirected to a separate email address where you can view them later, so as to avoid erasing an authentic email. Switching to a different level or deactivating the protection is also very easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unwanted messages out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you wish. You can also change the level of protection with a few clicks of the mouse in case spam email messages continue to enter your inbox or the filter begins removing legitimate email messages. Since you can select if the spam should be erased right away or re-sent to another email account, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you will not omit an email that you need. The messages that the email filter permits to proceed will still appear in your mailbox.
