What is an e-mail spam filter? How does one operate? How could you activate spam filtering?
Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may be ripped off. This is the reason why a lot of email service providers use spam filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound emails and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how many times they are mentioned, what site a specific link opens, what outbound email server the email comes from, etc. Certain hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about undesired messages, to ensure that their clients will not receive any message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you decide to host your domains with us and you choose any of our cloud web hosting plans
, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any email address that you set up. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 different security levels. If you still get spam email messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate email messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection solution is ensured by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk omitting a legitimate email message that may be considered spam due to its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and forward the emails to some other email account where you can check them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to make use of the mail service that is offered with our semi-dedicated servers

Switching to some other level of protection or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also easy and requires several clicks of the mouse.
