Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. That’s why, a lot of mail service providers rely on email filters, which are software apps that keep track of all inbound email messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how many times they’re cited, what website a given link opens, what outbound SMTP mail server the message comes from, and so on. Some web hosts also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unasked-for messages, to make certain that their clients won’t receive any email message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Hosting

The security of any email account that you create in a hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to every message in accordance with various criteria, such as the frequency of specific words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam emails, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may skip a legitimate email, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a given sender to a separate email address. In case you reach the decision that you no longer require an email filter for a given email account, you can deactivate it with no more than a few mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated servers, you will not need to worry about spam messages filling up your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with every account. Our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with several clicks and you can choose one of the five levels of safety – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, genuine messages get filtered, or if spam messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be redirected to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t missed out on a genuine email message.
