Most emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may get tricked. That is why, lots of email providers make use of email filters, which are software applications that keep track of all incoming emails and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message contains and how often they’re referred to, what site a particular link redirects to, what outbound SMTP email server the message comes from, and so on. Certain hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about undesired emails, to ensure that their clients won’t get any message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

The protection of any email account that you set up under a web hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of security based on the spam score it gives to each and every email in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may miss a legitimate email message, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a given sender to some other email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a particular mailbox, you can disable it with only several clicks of the mouse.
