Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. That’s why, many email service providers rely on email filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all incoming email messages and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how often they’re referred to, what website a given hyperlink points to, what outgoing server the message comes from, etc. Certain companies also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unwanted messages, to make certain that their clients will not get any message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with every shared hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the five levels of safety that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the body of each and every message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve picked. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose whether the messages that the spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or forwarded to another email address where you can review them at a later time, so as to prevent erasing a genuine message. Changing the level or deactivating the spam protection is also astonishingly easy.
