Most of the email messages sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may be conned. That’s why, numerous email providers use spam filters, which are applications that monitor all inbound emails and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email contains and how many times they’re mentioned, what web site a given link leads to, what server the email message is sent from, etc. Some hosting providers also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about undesirable messages, to ensure that their customers won’t receive any message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you order a shared hosting package from us and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few clicks, you can pick between 5 separate protection levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom filters and either erase unasked-for messages or send them to a 3rd-party email address such as where you can view them once again at a later time.
