Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may get duped. For this reason, numerous email providers use spam filters, which are software applications that monitor all inbound 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 specific hyperlink redirects to, what outgoing email server the message is sent from, and so on. Some web hosts also make use of the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unwanted messages, to make certain that their clients won’t get any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with top-class anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which classifies all inbound emails based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five different levels – from very low to very high. If you still receive spam messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate messages are marked as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be redirected to a chosen email address where you can read them later, so as to ensure that important messages won’t get lost.
