Most email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get conned. That is why, a lot of email providers make use of spam filters, which are software apps that monitor all incoming messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how many times they are mentioned, what site a specific hyperlink opens, what outbound mail server the message is sent from, and so on. Certain hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unwelcome messages, to ensure that their customers won’t receive any email message in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you create in a cloud web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 security levels based on the spam score given to each and every email in accordance with various criteria, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may miss an authentic email message, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a particular sender to another mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a given mailbox, you can disable it with no more than a few clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated plans, you won’t have to worry about spam emails cramming your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with each account. Our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a few clicks and you can choose one of the 5 safety levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for example, authentic messages get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk email messages go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be re-sent to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can examine them from time to time to make certain that you have not omitted a genuine email.
