Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may be scammed. That is the reason why lots of email providers use spam filters, which are applications that monitor all incoming email messages and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how often they are mentioned, what web site a given hyperlink points to, what outgoing SMTP server the message comes from, etc. Some web hosts also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unrequested messages, to make sure that their customers will not get any email message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

The protection of any email account that you set up in a web hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of safety based on the spam score given to each and every message depending on different parameters, such as the frequency of specific words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may omit an authentic message, you can mix the automated email filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a particular sender to a separate email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer want an email filter for a given mailbox, you can disable it with no more than a couple of mouse clicks.
