Read more about spam filters - what exactly they are, how they work and how to create one.
Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – undesirable messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get conned. That’s the reason why a lot of email service providers make use of spam filters, which are software apps that keep track of all incoming messages and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how often they are mentioned, what web site a particular link leads to, what SMTP server the email comes from, and so on. Certain web hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about undesired emails, to make certain that their customers won’t receive any email message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

With a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between five different security levels. If you continue to receive junk messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate messages from entering your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping a legitimate message that may be considered as spam due to its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the email message and re-send the emails to a different email address where you can view them later.
