Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. undesired messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. This is why, plenty of mail service providers resort to spam filters, which are applications that monitor all incoming emails and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how often they’re mentioned, what web site a particular hyperlink points to, what SMTP mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unwanted email messages, to make sure that their clients will not receive any email in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every web hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with us, you can opt for one of the 5 safety levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the content of every message, gives it a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have picked. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the email messages that the spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or forwarded to another email address where you can read them later, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate message. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also pretty easy.
