Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may get swindled. Because of this, a lot of mail service providers use email filters, which are software applications that monitor all inbound email messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email message contains and how many times they are referred to, what website a specific hyperlink leads to, what outbound SMTP server the message is sent from, etc. Some providers also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unrequested email messages, to make sure that their clients will not get any message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

The security of any email account that you create in a cloud website hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five security levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every email in accordance with various criteria, such as the frequency of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk emails, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip an authentic message, you can mix the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a given sender to a different mailbox. In case you reach the decision that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a certain email account, you can disable it with no more than a few mouse clicks.
