Spam and Virus Protection
LinkMAIL gives you total control of your spam and virus filter. We don't automatically block any emails from coming into our server, because we know our customers will want to filter their emails in their own way. Our spam and virus features include the following:
Delete Viruses Automatically
This option is set to enabled by default. For those people who still want to view emails that may contain a virus, the email's subject line will be rewritten and then the message will be placed in your spam folder.
Set the Sensitivity of the Spam Filter
One of the strengths of LinkMAIL’s spam system is that we give you control over how sensitive the spam filter is. If you want to have the highest scoring spam emails automatically removed, but the moderate scored emails placed in your spam folder, then that is absolutely doable.
Receive a Spam Digest Report
Receive a daily, weekly or monthly report of any emails in your spam folder. We'll send you the subject and opening sentence from each email. If you want to read the full email, click the link next to the subject and you'll be taken to a webpage where you can review the message and opt to have it redelivered to your inbox.
Spam to Inbox for POP3 Users
POP3 users often want to use our spam filter, but then want access to their spam folder from their local email client. The solution to this is to move your spam filtered emails (where the subject has now been altered to indicate it's spam) back to your inbox, so they can be downloaded via a regular POP3 connection. The user can then create a mail rule within their email client to place those spam emails into their local junk mail folder.
Discard Spam & Viruses from Forwarders
If you're forwarding a mailbox on to another email address, then the collection spam may cause your spam folder to fill up. This option will help keep your spam folder size under control by automatically discarding spam and viruses found in emails that are going to be forwarded on.
Stop your Spam Folder from Getting Too Big
Our spam folder archive options let you clear messages from your spam folder when:
- After the message reaches a certain age
- There are over X number of messages in your spam folder
- When the spam folder reaches a certain size
Whitelists and Blacklists
LinkMAIL supports the ability to whitelist or blacklist a single email address or an entire domain name. Any email address or domain name added by the admin user will be filtered to all of the mailboxes in the group, thereby creating an easy way to manage a global whitelist/blacklist.
Validation Response For Unknown Senders (Optional)
Verification response requires the sender of an email to physically click a link before the email will be delivered to your inbox. This helps to verify that the sender is actually a human and not some spam system. Once they click the link once, their email will be trusted by your account and they won't need to verify it again. You can customize the message they receive and also optionally only send verification response requests to emails that score more than a certain spam threshold.
