Most of the email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may get duped. That’s the reason why a lot of email providers make use of spam filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they are mentioned, what website a certain link points to, what SMTP server the email comes from, and so on. Certain hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unrequested email messages, to make certain that their clients won’t receive any email in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting
servers use one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every shared web hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can select one of the five levels of safety that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the body of each and every email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve chosen. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose whether the emails that the filter labels as spam should be erased or delivered to a separate mailbox where you can examine them at a later time, so as to avoid erasing a genuine email message. Switching to another level or disabling the protection is also extremely easy.
