Most of the email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may get ripped off. Because of this, lots of mail service providers make use of spam filters, which are apps that keep track of all inbound messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how often they’re cited, what web site a specific hyperlink points to, what outbound email server the email message comes from, and so on. Certain web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unwanted messages, to make certain that their clients will not get any email message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you order a hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks, you can choose between five separate safety levels. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most popular email filters available called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of every email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific email message or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom filters and either erase unsolicited messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party address such as where you can check them once again at a later point in time.

Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also easy and takes several clicks.
