Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may be swindled. This is the reason why many email providers use spam filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all incoming email messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how often they’re mentioned, what website a given hyperlink opens, what outbound SMTP email server the message is sent from, etc. Some web hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about undesirable email messages, to make certain that their clients won’t receive any message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you order a hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a couple of mouse clicks, you can choose between five different levels of protection. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of each and every message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to create custom spam filters and either erase unasked-for messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party address such as where you can check them again at a later point in time.
