Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – undesired messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. That is why, many mail service providers use email filters, which are software apps that monitor all incoming messages and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email includes and how many times they’re mentioned, what website a certain hyperlink points to, what outgoing server the message comes from, etc. Certain hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about undesirable emails, to make certain that their clients won’t get any message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

If you get a shared web hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to enable 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 several clicks of the mouse, you can choose between five different levels of protection. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most popular email filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of each email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom spam filters and either delete undesirable messages or forward them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can check them once more at a later point in time.
