Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – undesirable messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may be conned. That’s why, lots of email providers make use of spam filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound email messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how many times they are referred to, what site a given hyperlink leads to, what outgoing SMTP server the email message comes from, and so on. Certain hosting providers also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about unasked-for emails, to make sure that their customers won’t get any email message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each shared hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can opt for one of the five levels of security that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the body of every email, calculates a spam score and then continues according to the level that you’ve selected. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can choose if the emails that the anti-spam filter reports as spam should be deleted or re-sent to some other email account where you can view them at a later time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email. Switching to another level or deactivating the spam protection is also extremely easy.
