Mail Filtering

It seems that spam has become a fact of life on the Internet and without the correct protection, your mailbox can soon be flooded with spam. To improve our customers’ mail service we’ve invested in powerful MailFoundry Anti-Spam hardware. Our MailFoundry appliances are dedicated servers that sit in front of your mailbox protecting your email from incoming spam and viruses. A spam-free mailbox saves you the time deleting junk mail and making your work time more productive.

Dedicated Anti-Spam Hardware

We have multiple MailFoundry appliances setup for peformance and to provide redundancy. This means you have two MX records for your web hosting account, so in the event of one of the MailFoundry appliances failing, email is sent to the next MailFoundry so you don’t lose your email.

MailFoundry’s Message IQ scan engine uses a layered approach that maximises kill rates and minimises false positives by not using ‘scoring’ or rating systems for identifying spam – those systems are plagued by high false positive rates and are really only ‘guessing’ at spam.

The core layer for threat identification are the spam signature files, these signatures are created and managed by human spam editors who look at spam 24x7x365. MailFoundry release new spam updates every 5 minutes to ensure that our hardware has the latest rule sets to defeat spam attacks as they happen.

MailFoundy’s spam signatures are designed around actual identified spam. The system isn’t guessing at identifying incoming email which is why the false positives are the lowest in the industry.

Why MailFoundry?


MailFoundry’s anti-spam engine, “MessageIQ” was designed from the ground up to protect your message while taking care of spam, viruses and other email threats.


For over four years MailFoundry has been eliminating spam from email for over 2 million mailboxes world-wide.


MailFoundry is very effective at killing spam, but the real benefit is in its false positive rates. They lead the industry with a false positive rate of less than 1 in 1 million. Some customers have seen only one false positive in over four years of service.

Ease of Use

MailFoundry is a ‘hands off’ system meaning that administrators and end users are not spending time managing the system for rule creation, etc.
