Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. That’s why, many mail service providers resort to email filters, which are software applications that monitor all inbound emails and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email message contains and how often they’re referred to, what website a certain hyperlink leads to, what outgoing SMTP email server the email message is sent from, and so on. Some hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about undesired email messages, to make sure that their customers won’t receive any message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you order a web hosting plan from us and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to enable spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a couple of mouse clicks, you can choose between 5 different safety levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of every message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific email message or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom spam filters and either delete unwanted email messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party address like where you can check them once more at a later time.
