Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – undesirable messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may be duped. This is why, numerous email service providers resort to email filters, which are apps that keep track of all inbound emails and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email contains and how often they are referred to, what website a given link points to, what SMTP server the email message is sent from, etc. Some web hosts also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about undesirable messages, to make certain that their clients won’t get any email in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each shared web hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can opt for one of the five levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the content of every message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve selected. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can choose whether the email messages that the spam filter marks as spam should be erased or forwarded to some other email account where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email message. Changing the level or deactivating the protection is also astonishingly easy.
