Most email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may get conned. That’s why, plenty of email providers make use of spam filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all incoming email messages and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how many times they’re cited, what site a particular hyperlink leads to, what SMTP server the message is sent from, etc. Some hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about undesired email messages, to ensure that their clients will not get any email message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you create in a hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of safety based on the spam score given to each and every email depending on various criteria, such as the recurrence of specific words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk emails, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may skip a genuine message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a certain sender to a separate email account. If you decide that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a certain email account, you can disable it with only several mouse clicks.
