Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. This is the reason why lots of mail service providers rely on email filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how often they are cited, what web site a specific link redirects to, what SMTP email server the email message is sent from, etc. Some web hosting providers also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about undesired email messages, to ensure that their customers won’t get any email in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every plan, so if you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the five security levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each and every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve picked. Each email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the email messages that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be erased or forwarded to some other mailbox where you can read them later, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email message. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also very easy.
