Most email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be duped. For this reason, plenty of email providers make use of spam filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all incoming email messages and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they are cited, what website a specific link points to, what outgoing email server the message is sent from, and so on. Certain hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unwanted messages, to make certain that their clients will not receive any email in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Hosting
Our hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with every plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the 5 protection levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the content of each and every message, gives it a spam score and then continues according to the level that you have chosen. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose whether the emails that the anti-spam filter reports as spam should be erased or delivered to a separate mailbox where you can check them later, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate email. Switching to some other level or deactivating the protection is also extremely easy.
