Most of the emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be duped. That is the reason why numerous email service providers make use of spam filters, which are software apps that keep track of all incoming emails and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how often they’re mentioned, what site a specific hyperlink opens, what outbound SMTP server the email comes from, and so on. Some web hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unsolicited email messages, to ensure that their customers won’t receive any email in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you set up in a shared hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of security based on the spam score given to every message in accordance with various parameters, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may miss an authentic email message, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a given sender to a separate mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer require a spam filter for a specific email account, you can deactivate it with only a few clicks.
