Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages 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 service providers make use of spam filters, which are software apps that keep track of all incoming messages and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message consists of and how often they’re referred to, what site a given link opens, what email server the email is sent from, etc. Certain hosting providers 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 sure that their clients will not receive any message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Hosting

Our hosting servers use one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each shared hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the five levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each and every email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have selected. Every email account can have a different level and you can choose whether the emails that the anti-spam filter flags as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a separate email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting an authentic email. Switching to some other level or deactivating the protection is also truly easy.
