Most emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may be scammed. That’s why, a lot of email service providers make use of spam filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound email messages and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email message contains and how often they are mentioned, what site a particular link points to, what outbound SMTP mail server the message comes from, and so on. Certain web hosts also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about undesirable messages, to ensure that their clients will not get any email in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting package from our company and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a couple of mouse clicks, you can pick between five separate levels of protection. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of every email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom email filters and either get rid of unsolicited messages or forward them to a third-party address like where you can check them once more later.
