Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may get duped. That’s the reason why numerous email service providers make use of email filters, which are software apps that monitor all incoming emails and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how often they’re mentioned, what site a certain hyperlink points to, what outbound SMTP mail server the email is sent from, etc. Certain hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unrequested messages, to ensure that their clients won’t receive any email message in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you decide to host your domains with us and you select any of our website hosting packages, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any mailbox that you set up. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 different safety levels. In case you continue to get junk messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate emails from entering your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting a genuine email message that may be considered spam due to its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the email message and re-send the emails to a different mailbox where you can examine them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all undesired messages out of your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also change the safety level with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case spam messages continue to reach your mailbox or the filter starts removing legitimate messages. As you can choose if the spam should be deleted momentarily or redirected to a different mailbox, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you will not miss an email that you need. The emails that the filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
