Being a hosting provider isn’t easy. We get that. There are many unforeseeable occurrences that can put a damper on your service — however, spam email shouldn’t be one of them. We’ve highlighted three cPanel & WHM add-ons that you can use to fight incoming spam, malware, and viruses on your server and, ultimately, offer your customers a better experience.
SpamStopsHere is a unique, multilayer filter system that uses four criteria levels to weed out spam and malicious content, while permitting legitimate email, with a nearly 99.5% success rate. The first layer, the IP Blacklist, flags any email sent from known spam servers. The next layer scans the document for URLs associated with spam. The third layer scans it for strange phrases, rather than keywords, linked to malicious content. Finally, the last layer scans the format of the document for tricks often used by spammers to bypass normal email clients. This robust, dynamic process lessens server load and should make your customers pretty happy.
