Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get conned. For this reason, plenty of email service providers resort to email filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound emails and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message consists of and how often they’re mentioned, what site a specific hyperlink leads to, what outgoing SMTP email server the email message is sent from, and so on. Certain web hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about undesirable email messages, to ensure that their customers will not get any email message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every web hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can select one of the five levels of safety that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the body of each message, gives it a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you have selected. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the emails that the anti-spam filter classifies as spam should be erased or redirected to another email account where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting a genuine email message. Changing the level or disabling the spam protection is also extremely easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated servers, you won’t have to worry about junk emails stuffing your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with a few clicks of the mouse and you can pick any of the five levels of protection – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, genuine email messages get blocked, or if spam emails go through and appear in your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be re-sent to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can check them every now and then to ensure that you have not missed out on a genuine message.
