Most of the email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get tricked. This is why, a lot of mail service providers resort to spam filters, which are software applications that monitor all incoming messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email includes and how often they are cited, what website a specific link points to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email comes from, etc. Some hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about undesired emails, to make certain that their clients will not get any email message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

The security of any email account that you create under a cloud website hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of security based on the spam score it gives to each email message in accordance with various criteria, such as the frequency of specific words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may omit a legitimate email message, you can combine the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a specific sender to some other email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a certain mailbox, you can disable it with only several mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated servers, you will not have to worry about unsolicited bulk emails stuffing your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with several mouse clicks and you can pick any of the five safety levels – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, legitimate email messages get filtered, or if spam emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be forwarded to a special email account like and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to ensure that you haven’t missed an authentic email.
