Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may get ripped off. That is the reason why numerous mail service providers rely on email filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound emails and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how often they’re mentioned, what site a specific hyperlink opens, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Some companies also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unrequested emails, to make sure that their customers won’t get any message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting package from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 different protection levels. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of each message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain message or allows it to reach your inbox. Hepsia will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either eliminate undesired messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party email address like where you can check them again after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with second-to-none spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which rates all inbound messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between five different levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you continue to receive junk email messages, you can raise the level, or if authentic messages are reported as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted right away or if they should be re-sent to a chosen mailbox where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to make sure that the emails that you need won’t disappear.
