Most of the email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may be tricked. This is why, numerous email service providers rely on email filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound messages and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how often they are referred to, what web site a particular link leads to, what outbound email server the message comes from, and so on. Certain web hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unwanted emails, to make certain that their clients won’t receive any message in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a couple of mouse clicks, you can choose between five separate protection levels. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of each and every email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given message or allows it to reach your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to set up custom filters and either eliminate unasked-for messages or send them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them again at a later time.
