Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. undesirable messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may get conned. Because of this, plenty of email service providers use spam filters, which are software apps that keep track of all inbound emails and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how often they’re referred to, what web site a particular hyperlink points to, what email server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain companies also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unrequested emails, to make sure that their clients won’t get any email in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you create under a shared hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 safety levels based on the spam score it gives to every email depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of given words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may skip a legitimate email message, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a specific sender to a separate email address. In case you reach the decision that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with only a few clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated servers, you won’t need to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages clogging your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with each and every account. Our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks and you can select one of the five security levels – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, legitimate email messages get filtered, or if junk email messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be forwarded to a special mailbox like and not to be erased. Thus, you can check them every now and then to make sure that you have not missed out on an authentic message.
