Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may be scammed. For this reason, plenty of email service providers resort to email filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how many times they are mentioned, what web site a particular link points to, what outgoing server the email message is sent from, and so on. Some web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unwanted email messages, to make sure that their clients won’t get any email 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 available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with every web hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the five security levels 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 shared accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the body of each email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve opted for. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose if the emails that the spam filter reports as spam should be erased or re-sent to a different email address where you can read them at a later time, so as to prevent erasing an authentic email message. Switching to some other level or disabling the protection is also exceptionally easy.
