Most of the email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. undesired messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may get ripped off. Because of this, plenty of mail service providers use email filters, which are applications that keep track of all incoming messages and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they’re referred to, what web site a specific link opens, what outbound mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain web hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unrequested email messages, to make certain that their clients won’t get any email message in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you get a web hosting package from us and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 separate levels of security. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most famous filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of each email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain message or permits it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also allow you to activate custom filters and either delete undesirable messages or send them to a 3rd-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them again at a later point in time.
