Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. undesired messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may be tricked. This is why, a lot of mail service providers use spam filters, which are apps that monitor all incoming email messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how many times they’re mentioned, what site a particular hyperlink opens, what outgoing mail server the message comes from, etc. Some companies also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unsolicited email messages, to make certain that their clients will not receive any email message in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every plan, so in case you host your domains with us, you can pick one of the five levels of safety that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the content of each email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have selected. Each email account can have a different level and you can choose if the emails that the spam filter considers as spam should be erased or delivered to a different email address where you can review them at a later time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email. Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also exceptionally easy.
