Most of the email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. undesirable messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may get tricked. Because of this, many email service providers make use of email filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound email messages and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email contains and how often they are referred to, what web site a certain link redirects to, what outbound SMTP mail server the email message comes from, and so on. Some providers also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unwelcome emails, to make certain that their customers won’t receive any message in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you set up under a shared hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 security levels based on the spam score given to each email depending on different criteria, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may skip an authentic email message, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a certain sender to a separate mailbox. If you decide that you no longer want an email filter for a given mailbox, you can deactivate it with only a few clicks of the mouse.
