Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. Because of this, plenty of mail service providers rely on email filters, which are apps that keep track of all inbound emails and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email message consists of and how many times they are referred to, what web site a certain link leads to, what outbound SMTP server the email message comes from, and so on. Some web hosting providers also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unwanted messages, to make certain that their customers will not receive any email message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Hosting

In case you decide to host your domains with us and you select any of our hosting plans, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any email address that you set up. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up 5 different levels of protection. If you still get spam messages or the filters start preventing authentic messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam solution is guaranteed by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk omitting an authentic email that may be regarded as spam due to its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and forward the emails to a different email account where you can examine them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts provide exceptional spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which rates all incoming emails based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any account via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five different protection levels – from very high to very low. If you still get unsolicited bulk messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate email messages are reported as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased right away or if they should be forwarded to a chosen email address where you can view them later, so as to make sure that important emails won’t get lost.
