Most of the emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may get conned. Because of this, lots of email providers rely on spam filters, which are applications that keep track of all inbound emails and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how many times they are mentioned, what website a specific link leads to, what SMTP server the message is sent from, etc. Some web hosts also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unasked-for messages, to make certain that their customers won’t get any email in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Hosting

Our hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each cloud web hosting package, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the five levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the content of each email message, calculates a spam score and then continues based on the level that you have chosen. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the messages that the filter labels as spam should be deleted or re-sent to another email address where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email message. Switching to another level or deactivating the protection is also stunningly easy.
