Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be swindled. Because of this, plenty of mail service providers rely on spam filters, which are software apps that monitor all incoming messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email message consists of and how often they’re referred to, what web site a particular link points to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain web hosts also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about undesired emails, to ensure that their customers won’t receive any message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you set up under a cloud web hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of security based on the spam score it gives to every email depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of specific words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may miss a genuine message, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a certain sender to a separate email address. If you reach the decision that you no longer require an email filter for a specific mailbox, you can deactivate it with only a couple of clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesired emails out of your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also fine-tune the safety level with a couple of mouse clicks if junk email messages continue to reach your inbox or the anti-spam filter starts deleting legitimate emails. As you can choose if the spam should be erased right away or delivered to another email address, you can create, for example, and check all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you will not miss an email that you need. The emails that the email filter allows to proceed will still be received in your mailbox.
