Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get ripped off. That is why, numerous mail service providers use spam filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound emails and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they’re cited, what website a given hyperlink points to, what SMTP mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain providers also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about unwanted email messages, to make sure that their customers won’t receive any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

With only a few clicks of the mouse, you can pick between 5 separate safety levels. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most popular spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header field and the body of every email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to activate custom email filters and either get rid of undesirable messages or re-send them to a third-party email address such as where you can view them once more at a later time.
