Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get conned. For this reason, plenty of email service providers rely on email filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email message consists of and how many times they’re referred to, what website a particular link leads to, what SMTP server the message comes from, etc. Certain hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about unrequested emails, to ensure that their clients will not receive any message in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers use one of the best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with every cloud web hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can choose one of the 5 safety levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the content of every email message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have picked. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can choose whether the email messages that the spam filter considers as spam should be erased or forwarded to some other email account where you can review them at a later time, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate email message. Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also pretty easy.
