Most of the email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – undesired messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may get ripped off. This is the reason why plenty of email service providers make use of email filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all inbound messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how often they are referred to, what site a certain hyperlink opens, what SMTP server the email message comes from, and so on. Some hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unrequested email messages, to ensure that their customers won’t receive any email message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to set up spam filters for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just several mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 different levels of safety. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most famous filters available called SpamAssassin. It examines the header and the body of every message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain message or allows it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also permit you to activate custom email filters and either erase unsolicited emails or re-send them to a 3rd-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can examine them again at a later time.
