A spam filter is an application that obstructs undesired emails from reaching a given mailbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, etc. That is why, it’s quite important to use email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being ripped off somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better protection – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Hosting companies frequently use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with every shared hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can opt for one of the 5 levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header and the body of each message, gives it a spam score and then continues according to the level that you have picked. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the spam filter considers as spam should be erased or redirected to some other mailbox where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email message. Changing the level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also stunningly easy.
