It protects organizations against Viruses, Worms, Trojans, Backdoors and many other malware, blocks Spam and Phishing mails, while also providing total Content Security for Enterprises.


Web Based Administration
MailScan Administration Console can be accessed using a browser, thus enabling Remote Administration of the application. All the features of MailScan for Mail Servers are available in the web interface.

Advanced AntiSpam and AntiPhishing
MailScan stops Spamming and Phishing using a combination of highly powerful technologies like,

Non Intrusive Learning Patterns (NILP)
This is a revolutionary technology from MicroWorld that works on the principles of Artificial Intelligence to create an adaptive mechanism in Spam and Phishing Control.

This technology can analyze each email according to the Behavioral Patterns of the user and can take an informed decision there after. It has the capability to learn on its own and can also incorporate regular research feeds from the MicroWorld Server.

Real-time Black List (RBL)
RBL is a DNS Server that lists IP Addresses of known Spam sending machines. If the contacting IP is found to be in one of the blacklisted categories, the connection is terminated.

Unlike normal RBLs, SURBL Check works by scanning for the presence of names or URLs of Spam websites in the message body.

General Header Tests
MailScan checks the validity of all the headers in the mail and if any of the headers are found to be invalid, the mail will be considered as Spam.

MX/A DNS Record Verification
The domain part of the email address in the "MAIL FROM" SMTP command is checked to see if it has a DNS MX (Mail Server) and/or A (IP) record as it is typical of spammers to use non-existent domains in their emails.

Reverse DNS
A reverse DNS check is performed to see if the connecting IP resolves to a valid domain name before accepting or rejecting the email.

X-Spam Rules Check
X-Spam Rules are Rules that describe certain characteristics of a mail and they are matched against the mail header, body and attachment to generate a score for each mail. If the score crosses a threshold value, then the mail is considered a Spam.

Sender Policy Framework (SPF)
Sender Policy Framework is a world standard that helps to prevent forgery of sender address and is a powerful mechanism to stop Phishing mails.

Auto Updates for Spam Detection
The system updates the Bayesian Spam Database with probable phrases and words.

Power to Block Image Spam
MailScan uses powerful technologies to filter out image spam.

Real-Time Virus Scanning
Scans e-mails for all types of malware in Real-Time including all inbound and outbound, SMTP and POP3 mail traffic at the Mail Gateway itself.

Real-Time Content Scanning
