Managed Spam & Virus Filtering

What is a Spam & Virus Filtering Service?

Screwloose offers hosted Spam & Virus Filtering service that is hosted and maintained directly by Screwloose’s Australian network. E-mail that is destined for your domain is routed through the SPAM filter to your email server. The SPAM Filter analyzes your message using a range of different filtering technology to determine if the message is SPAM or CLEAN.  “Clean” messages are forwarded to your mail server. Messages that are infected with a virus or detected as SPAM are placed in quarantine from where you can force their delivery at will via the web interface or the weekly SPAM report. This strategy relieves your mail server of unnecessary loading by spam and infected e-mail’s and provides maximum protection.
