Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – undesired messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may be ripped off. This is the reason why many email providers resort to spam filters, which are applications that monitor all incoming messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how many times they’re referred to, what web site a particular link points to, what outbound email server the message comes from, etc. Certain providers also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unrequested messages, to make certain that their customers will not get any message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you get a web hosting package from our company and if you use our email services, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several clicks, you can pick between 5 different levels of safety. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most famous spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It examines the header and the body of every email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email message or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom filters and either erase unasked-for messages or redirect them to a third-party address such as where you can read them once more at a later time.
