Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get tricked. This is why, a lot of mail service providers make use of email filters, which are applications that monitor all incoming emails and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email consists of and how often they’re referred to, what site a certain link opens, what outgoing email server the message comes from, and so on. Some web hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about unasked-for emails, to make certain that their customers won’t receive any email message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with every hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can select one of the five protection levels that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the body of each and every message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have chosen. Each email account can have a different level and you can choose whether the emails that the spam filter flags as spam should be deleted or re-sent to some other mailbox where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting an authentic email message. Changing the level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also truly easy.
