Most of the email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be scammed. That’s why, many mail service providers resort to email filters, which are apps that keep track of all incoming messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email message contains and how many times they’re referred to, what website a specific hyperlink leads to, what SMTP email server the email message comes from, etc. Certain web hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about unrequested email messages, to make sure that their clients won’t receive any email message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you get a shared hosting package from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than several clicks of the mouse, you can pick between 5 separate protection levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually boost the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of each message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific message or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom spam filters and either eliminate unwanted messages or send them to a third-party address like where you can read them again later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated service, you will not need to worry about unsolicited bulk emails clogging your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin filter that we offer with every account. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a few clicks and you can select any of the 5 levels of security – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, legitimate emails get filtered, or if junk messages 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 email account such as and not to be erased. Thus, you can go through them every now and then to make certain that you haven’t omitted a legitimate message.
