Most of the email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may be ripped off. For this reason, numerous mail service providers use spam filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound messages and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email message includes and how many times they are mentioned, what site a given link opens, what outbound mail server the message comes from, and so on. Some companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unwanted emails, to ensure that their clients will not receive any email in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers rely on one of the very best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every cloud hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the 5 protection levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account 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 shared accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the body of each email, calculates a spam score and then continues according to the level that you have picked. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can choose if the email messages that the filter flags as spam should be deleted or delivered to a separate mailbox where you can examine them later, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email message. Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also quite easy.
