Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with different offers or with hyperlinks 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 be ripped off. That’s why, numerous mail service providers make use of email filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email message consists of and how often they’re mentioned, what web site a given link leads to, what server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unrequested email messages, to make sure that their clients won’t receive any email message in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you pick any of our cloud plans, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any mailbox that you create. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up 5 different security levels. If you continue to get spam email messages or the filters start preventing authentic email messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk omitting an authentic message that may be considered as spam owing 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 another email address where you can check them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated plans, you will not need to worry about spam messages occupying your mailboxes every now and then, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a few clicks of the mouse and you can choose one of the 5 levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, authentic emails get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk email messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be forwarded to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t missed a legitimate email.
