Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. For this reason, lots of email service providers rely on spam filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how often they’re referred to, what web site a certain link points to, what mail server the email message comes from, etc. Certain hosting companies also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about undesirable emails, to make certain that their customers won’t get any message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the five protection levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the body of each and every message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve selected. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the spam filter labels as spam should be erased or delivered to some other mailbox where you can examine them at a later time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email. Switching to another level or deactivating the protection is also remarkably easy.
