Most of the emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. For this reason, plenty of email service providers use spam filters, which are software apps that monitor all incoming messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how often they’re mentioned, what site a given link opens, what email server the message is sent from, and so on. Some web hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about undesired messages, to make certain that their clients will not receive any message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every package, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can select one of the 5 levels of security that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the content of each message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve opted for. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the messages that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be erased or delivered to a different mailbox where you can review them at a later time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate message. Switching to another level or disabling the spam protection is also unbelievably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can have a different level of protection for each email account and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted or redirected to a different mailbox where you can read them later in order to make sure that you won’t omit legitimate emails. Switching to a different level or deactivating the protection is also easy and requires several mouse clicks.
