Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may be duped. That is why, numerous email providers rely on email filters, which are apps that keep track of all incoming email messages and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message contains and how many times they’re referred to, what web site a given hyperlink redirects to, what outgoing mail server the message comes from, and so on. Some providers also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about undesired email messages, to make certain that their customers won’t receive any message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you create under a cloud hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to every email message depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of given words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam email messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss a legitimate email, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a given sender to another mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer want an email filter for a specific email account, you can disable it with just a few mouse clicks.
