Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may be scammed. For this reason, lots of email providers make use of spam filters, which are applications that monitor all inbound messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email message contains and how many times they are referred to, what site a certain hyperlink leads to, what SMTP server the email comes from, etc. Some companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unwelcome emails, to ensure that their customers won’t get any email message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with every plan, so if you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the 5 levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the content of every message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have selected. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the email messages that the filter marks as spam should be erased or delivered to a separate email account where you can examine them later, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate email message. Switching to another level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also truly easy.
