Most of the email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. This is the reason why plenty of email service providers resort to spam filters, which are applications that monitor all inbound email messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email contains and how many times they’re cited, what site a given link redirects to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email is sent from, etc. Certain web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unsolicited messages, to ensure that their customers will not receive any email message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting package from our company and if you use our email 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 Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can pick between 5 separate levels of security. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous filters available called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to activate custom email filters and either get rid of unwanted messages or forward them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can examine them once more at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you reach the decision to make use of the mail service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all unsolicited emails out of your mailbox by activating the five-level anti-spam protection that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan. This can be done through the feature-loaded Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter to make certain that we provide the very best possible security for our clients. You can have a different protection level for each mailbox and you can select whether the filtered messages should be erased or delivered to a different email address where you can view them later so as to ensure that you won’t omit legitimate messages. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also easy and takes a couple of clicks.
