Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get ripped off. Because of this, a lot of email providers make use of email filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound emails and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they’re referred to, what site a given link points to, what mail server the message comes from, etc. Certain hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about unwelcome emails, to make certain that their customers will not receive any email message in their mailbox that should not be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
The safety of any email account that you create in a shared hosting
account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five protection levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every email in accordance with various parameters, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting spam email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may omit an authentic email message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to a separate email address. In case you reach the decision that you no longer need an email filter for a given mailbox, you can disable it with no more than a few mouse clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you use one of our semi-dedicated hosting

Our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any mailbox with several clicks and you can select one of the five security levels – from very low to very high.

Thus, you can examine them from time to time to ensure that you have not missed a genuine email.
