Find out more on spam filters - what exactly they are, the way they work and ways to set up one.
Most of the email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may get tricked. That’s why, many email providers use spam filters, which are software apps that keep track of all incoming email messages and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how often they are referred to, what website a specific hyperlink redirects to, what outbound SMTP email server the message is sent from, etc. Some web hosts also make use of the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unrequested emails, to ensure that their clients won’t receive any message in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting
servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each shared hosting package, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the 5 levels of safety that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header and the body of every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have opted for. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose whether the emails that the spam filter classifies as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a different email account where you can review them at a later time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate message. Changing the level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also truly easy.
