Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may get ripped off. Because of this, a lot of mail service providers rely on spam filters, which are applications that monitor all incoming messages and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how many times they are referred to, what web site a certain hyperlink leads to, what outgoing SMTP server the email is sent from, and so on. Some providers also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unwelcome email messages, to make certain that their clients will not get any message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a cloud website hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks, you can select between 5 different levels of protection. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most famous email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom spam filters and either erase unwelcome messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party address like where you can double-check them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages offer top-class anti-spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which sorts all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any account via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five different safety levels – from very low to very high. If you continue to get junk messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate email messages are marked as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted right away or if they should be redirected to a designated mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that important emails won’t disappear.
