Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get duped. That’s why, many email providers use email filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all incoming email messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how many times they’re referred to, what website a given hyperlink opens, what mail server the email message is sent from, etc. Some providers also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about undesired emails, to make certain that their customers will not get any email in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you order a web hosting plan from us 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 set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 different security levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of each email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email message or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to create custom filters and either erase undesired email messages or send them to a third-party address such as where you can check them again afterwards.
