Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may get tricked. Because of this, lots of mail service providers make use of spam filters, which are software applications that monitor all inbound emails and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how often they are mentioned, what site a particular link leads to, what SMTP mail server the message comes from, and so on. Some web hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about undesirable messages, to ensure that their customers won’t receive any message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each cloud web hosting package, so in case you host your domains with us, you can opt for one of the 5 levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the content of every message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have selected. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the messages that the anti-spam filter considers as spam should be erased or delivered to another mailbox where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting an authentic message. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also rather easy.
