  • Robust Anti Spam features that allow you to create a White List of clean domains and users.
  • Online RBL and DUL Controls that allow you to verify a users authenticity.
  • Create a Black List of known Spamming domains and users to auto block their mails
  • Set Filters to check for Spam phrases and words. Apply a Spam severity level to control how Spam is identified
  • Auto download Anti Virus Signatures
  • Block any attachment type
  • Create and send custom alerts when virus or Spam is detected in mails, to the mail sender, receiver and admin
  • Quarantine Spam and virus infected mails to a directory or mailbox
  • Start Anti-Virus/Spam and mail service directly from the application without quitting or reboot.
Anti Spam Features

WHITE LISTS
MailScan for Linux (CommuniGate Pro) allows you to create a White List of clean domains and users. In addition there is a list of 'Spam phrases'. Mails with such phrases should be blocked. The software allows you to apply a severity level to the phrases from low to high. This allows you to control how Spam is identified.

RBL AND DUL CONTROLS
MailScan for Linux (CommuniGate Pro) has a list of RBL and DUL to verify a users authenticity.

MAPS (Mail Abuse Prevention System) provides a list of IP addresses that are known Spammers or allow spamming. This list is called as Black hole list. When your server, receives a mail from a domain, not on its allow domain list, you can send a query to MAPS Server which verifies the IP.

Spammers sometimes use stealth mail tactics when their initial Spam attempts are blocked. They use a Dial-Up-Service (DUL) provider to connect their Spam mail service, to the server. This is trespassing on your MailServer and the MAPS DUL project helps in identifying and stopping Spam. The project has a list of DUL users who are known Spammers. To verify if the request for connection to your Server is genuine, you can send a query to dialups.mail-abuse.org. The request is verified and returned.
