Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get conned. That’s the reason why numerous email providers use spam filters, which are applications that monitor all incoming emails and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email message includes and how many times they are referred to, what website a specific hyperlink opens, what SMTP email server the message is sent from, and so on. Some web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unwanted email messages, to ensure that their customers won’t get any email in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers use one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each shared hosting package, so if you host your domains with us, you can opt for one of the five levels of protection that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the content of each email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve opted for. Every email account can have a different level and you can select whether the emails that the spam filter flags as spam should be deleted or forwarded to another mailbox where you can examine them later, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also rather easy.
