Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may be duped. That is why, numerous email service providers make use of spam filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound emails and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how often they’re mentioned, what website a certain link points to, what outgoing server the email message comes from, and so on. Some companies also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unasked-for messages, to ensure that their customers will not receive any email message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting servers use one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with every web hosting package, so if you host your domains with us, you can pick one of the five levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the content of every email message, calculates a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you’ve picked. Every email account can have a different level and you can select if the email messages that the anti-spam filter labels as spam should be erased or forwarded to a separate email address where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate email message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the spam protection is also really easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can have a different level of protection for each mailbox and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased or re-sent to some other email address where you can examine them at a later time to make sure that you are not losing genuine emails. Switching to a different protection level or deactivating the protection is also easy and takes several clicks of the mouse.
