Most emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may get tricked. This is why, lots of email providers resort to email filters, which are software apps that keep track of all inbound messages and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how often they’re referred to, what website a certain hyperlink opens, what SMTP email server the email is sent from, etc. Some hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unwelcome emails, to ensure that their clients will not get any message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

The safety of any email account that you set up in a website hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 security levels based on the spam score given to each email depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may omit a genuine email message, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a certain sender to some other mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a certain mailbox, you can disable it with just a few clicks.
