Most of the email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may be swindled. For this reason, lots of mail service providers resort to spam filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all incoming email messages and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email consists of and how often they’re mentioned, what site a given link opens, what outgoing server the message comes from, and so on. Certain web hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about undesirable email messages, to make certain that their customers will not get any message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up in a cloud hosting account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five levels of safety based on the spam score given to each and every email in accordance with various criteria, such as the frequency of specific words, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip a legitimate email, you can combine the automated spam filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a particular sender to a separate email address. If you decide that you no longer require a spam filter for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with just a couple of mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome emails out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox at any moment. You can also alter the level of safety with several clicks if unsolicited bulk emails continue to enter your mailbox or the filter begins deleting genuine email messages. As you can choose whether the spam should be deleted straight away or delivered to another email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss a message that you need. The messages that the email filter allows to go through will still appear in your inbox.
