Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be scammed. This is why, a lot of email service providers resort to spam filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how often they’re cited, what website a specific hyperlink leads to, what outbound mail server the email comes from, and so on. Certain web hosts also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about unasked-for emails, to make certain that their clients won’t get any email message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with every cloud web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can choose one of the five levels of security that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the content of each and every message, calculates a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you’ve opted for. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can choose if the messages that the spam filter considers as spam should be erased or delivered to a separate email account where you can check them later, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email message. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also surprisingly easy.
