Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may get duped. This is why, lots of mail service providers make use of email filters, which are software applications that keep track of all incoming emails and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how many times they are mentioned, what web site a given hyperlink opens, what mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Some hosting providers also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about undesirable emails, to make certain that their clients will not receive any email in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated services, you will not need to worry about spam email messages filling up your mailboxes every now and then, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with each account. Our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any email account with a few clicks and you can choose one of the 5 safety levels – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, legitimate email messages get blocked, or if spam messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be re-sent to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can go through them every now and then to make sure that you haven’t omitted a legitimate email message.
