Mailscanner

Protect yourself from virus infected email, unwanted SPAM and Phishing emails our Anti-Virus and Anti-Spam Scanning Service provides the following:

  • Email scanned by anti-virus software with removal and quarantine of infected attachments.
  • Anti-virus updates are run hourly to ensure the latest detection technology is used.
  • Email scanned for dangerous file attachments with removal and quarantine of the files.
  • Email scanned by anti-spam RealTime BlackHole Lists (RBL) to identify known/likely spammers.
  • Email scanned by anti-spam software that performs:

    • Email Header Analysis: spammers use a number of tricks to mask their identities, fool you into thinking they've sent a valid mail, or fool you into thinking you must have subscribed at some stage.
    • Email Text Analysis: again, spam mails often have a characteristic style (to put it politely), and some characteristic disclaimers text.
    • Razor: Vipul's Razor is a collaborative spam-tracking database, which works by taking a signature of spam messages. Since spam typically operates by sending an identical message to hundreds of people, Razor short-circuits this by allowing the first person to receive a spam to add it to the database -- at which point everyone else will automatically block it.
