Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may be ripped off. That is why, plenty of mail service providers resort to email filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email consists of and how often they’re referred to, what website a particular link opens, what outbound SMTP email server the email comes from, and so on. Certain companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unrequested 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 Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting servers use one of the very best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with every package, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the 5 protection levels that the filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the content of every email, gives it a spam score and then continues based on the level that you have picked. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the email messages that the spam filter flags as spam should be deleted or redirected to a separate mailbox where you can review them later, so as to prevent erasing a genuine message. Changing the level or disabling the protection is also truly easy.
