Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may be conned. That’s the reason why many email service providers resort to spam filters, which are apps that keep track of all incoming emails and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message includes and how often they’re mentioned, what website a specific link leads to, what outgoing mail server the message comes from, and so on. Some companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unwanted messages, to make sure that their clients will not receive any email in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every shared hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can choose one of the 5 levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the content of every email, calculates a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you’ve chosen. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the messages that the filter labels as spam should be deleted or forwarded to some other mailbox where you can examine them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting a genuine email. Switching to a different level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also exceptionally easy.
