Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be conned. That is why, lots of email service providers rely on spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email message contains and how many times they are mentioned, what website a given link points to, what outbound SMTP mail server the email comes from, etc. Certain providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unwanted emails, to ensure that their customers won’t get any email in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you set up in a website hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to each email depending on different criteria, such as the frequency of certain words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving junk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may miss a genuine email, you can mix the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a certain sender to a separate email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer want an email filter for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with only a couple of clicks.
