Most 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 emails annoying, but they also pose a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may be scammed. Because of this, numerous mail service providers make use of email filters, which are software applications that monitor all inbound messages and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email includes and how often they are referred to, what site a certain hyperlink points to, what mail server the email is sent from, etc. Certain hosting providers also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about undesirable email messages, to ensure that their clients won’t receive any message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

The protection of any email account that you set up under a cloud website hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of protection based on the spam score given to every message in accordance with various criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words, the sender, etc. If you keep getting spam emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may miss an authentic message, you can combine the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a given sender to another mailbox. In case you reach the decision that you no longer need an email filter for a certain mailbox, you can deactivate it with just a couple of mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted in your account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesired email messages out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you wish. You can also adjust the level of safety with a few mouse clicks if spam emails continue to reach your mailbox or the filter begins removing legitimate emails. As you can choose whether the spam should be erased immediately or re-sent to a separate mailbox, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you will not omit an email message that you need. The emails that the anti-spam filter allows to proceed will still appear in your mailbox.
