Most of the email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may get tricked. That’s the reason why many email providers make use of spam filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all incoming email messages and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they’re referred to, what site a certain link points to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email message is sent from, etc. Some providers also make use of the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unasked-for messages, to ensure that their customers will not receive any message in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every cloud web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can select one of the 5 levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the body of each and every message, calculates a spam score and then continues based on the level that you’ve selected. Each email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the emails that the filter marks as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a separate email account where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing a genuine email message. Switching to another level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also extremely easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all undesired messages away from your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account at any moment. You can also adjust the level of safety with several clicks of the mouse in case unsolicited bulk email messages continue to reach your mailbox or the anti-spam filter starts removing authentic email messages. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted immediately or redirected to a separate mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t omit an email message that you need. The email messages that the email filter permits to go through will still be received in your inbox.
