Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. undesired messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may be tricked. For this reason, plenty of email providers rely on email filters, which are software applications that monitor all inbound messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how often they’re mentioned, what site a given link points to, what outbound SMTP email server the email message is sent from, etc. Certain web hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unwelcome email messages, to make sure that their clients won’t receive any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each shared web hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the 5 safety levels that the filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the body of each email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have opted for. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the emails that the anti-spam filter considers as spam should be erased or forwarded to another email address where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing a genuine email message. Switching to some other level or disabling the spam protection is also surprisingly easy.
