Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be conned. That is the reason why lots of email providers resort to email filters, which are software apps that keep track of all incoming email messages and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how many times they are mentioned, what website a given hyperlink opens, what SMTP mail server the email message is sent from, and so on. Some web hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about unasked-for messages, to make certain that their clients won’t receive any message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers use one of the best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every shared hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the 5 levels of security that the filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the content of every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have picked. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose if the messages that the filter marks as spam should be deleted or delivered to a different email account where you can examine them later, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email message. Changing the level or deactivating the protection is also truly easy.
