Learn more about spam filters - just what they are, how they work and ways to create one.
Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may get tricked. This is the reason why a lot of email providers rely on email filters, which are software applications that monitor all inbound emails and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how many times they’re mentioned, what web site a certain link opens, what outbound SMTP mail server the email message comes from, and so on. Certain web hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about undesirable messages, to make sure that their customers won’t receive any email message in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
packages provide first-class anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which rates all inbound messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between five different levels of safety – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving spam emails, you can raise the level, or if legitimate email messages are classified as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased right away or if they should be re-sent to a chosen mailbox where you can view them at a later time, so as to make certain that the emails that you need will not disappear.
