Server Wide or User Managed

System administrators can elect to lock down the server as a whole, and implement their own robust antispam policies, or allow domain administrators to manage antispam options. And if they want, domain administrators can even let their users manage what they want done to low, medium and high probability messages.

Additional Email Server Antispam

Antispam Add-Ons

In addition to the free email antispam options available with SmarterMail, it's possible to increase antispam protection using third-party products, including:

  • Cyren Premium Antispam - using their Recurrent Pattern Detection (RPD) it's possible to dramatically increase the efficiency of spam protection while offloading the CPU cycles to Cyren's servers.
  • Message Sniffer - uses collaborative learning technologies to accurately identify spam, viruses and other email borne malware before it hits inboxes.
  • Add your own - SmarterMail is flexible enough to allow for additional third-party products, services, or antispam/security appliances.

Custom Spam Filtering

Along with configuring the included antispam tools, system administrators can create custom rules for how to handle a message once it's scored as spam. Messages can have their subject lines appended for easy identification by users or automatically filtered so that they never hit a user's inbox.

Consistent Rulesets

For system administrators who manage multiple mail servers, it's possible to configure antispam options on one server, then export those rules and import them into another SmarterMail server on the network. This allows for a robust, consistent set of antispam options on every mail server.

Email Server RBL Management

Antispam Management

Using SmarterMail's web interface, system administrators can access all security features using their favorite web browser. In addition, all antispam settings are contained in a single JSON file, so system admins can easily transfer antispam settings so that all SmarterMail servers are consistently managed and consistently secured.

Enterprise Level Antivirus

SmarterMail includes effective and self-updating virus protection measures to ensure you run a secure server. Using ClamAV, detailed antivirus activity reports are available at the system, domain and even the user levels. SmarterMail also employs Windows Defender, for added protection.

Administrators can also integrate SmarterMail with third-party antivirus programs via a command-line execution. This can be an efficient solution for high-volume mail environments by reducing the burden on the mail server itself.

Antivirus Add-Ons

Cyren's Zero-Hour Outbreak Detection gives administrators peace of mind and the confidence that their mail servers are protected from outbreaks the moment they occur.

Administrators can also use any other antivirus protection, either installed on the server, in the cloud or even via command line.

Additional Security

  • Authentication app support
  • Built-in Intrusion Detection System (IDS)
  • SSL/TLS support
