Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. undesired messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. This is the reason why numerous email providers use email filters, which are applications that keep track of all inbound messages and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message contains and how often they are referred to, what web site a specific hyperlink leads to, what outbound SMTP email server the email message comes from, and so on. Certain hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about unrequested emails, to make certain that their clients will not receive any message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each cloud web hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the five levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the content of each message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve selected. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the messages that the filter considers as spam should be deleted or redirected to some other mailbox where you can check them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the spam protection is also very easy.
