Most email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may get tricked. That’s the reason why lots of email providers use spam filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message includes and how many times they’re mentioned, what site a given hyperlink redirects to, what SMTP mail server the email comes from, etc. Some providers also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about unrequested email messages, to make certain that their customers won’t receive any message in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the very best spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with every shared hosting package, so if you host your domains with us, you can pick one of the 5 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 Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the body of each email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve selected. Every email account can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the filter reports as spam should be erased or delivered to a different email account where you can check them later, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate message. Switching to some other level or disabling the spam protection is also stunningly easy.
