Most of the email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get conned. For this reason, lots of email service providers resort to spam filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email message consists of and how often they are referred to, what site a particular hyperlink leads to, what outbound SMTP server the email message is sent from, etc. Certain hosting providers also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about unwanted emails, to make certain that their clients will not receive any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The safety of any email account that you set up under a cloud hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to every email message in accordance with different parameters, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may miss an authentic email message, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a specific sender to another mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a particular mailbox, you can disable it with only a couple of mouse clicks.
