Frequently Asked Questions
How does your service work?
When you decide to use our services, you only need to do a simple modification to your DNS settings. From then on, all emails sent to your domain are directed to our servers where they are analysed and scanned for viruses. Once done, emails are redirected to your corporate server.
You can see the Architecture.
What happens when you detect spam?
There are two main options:
- Quarantine disabled: spams are tagged in the subject line to let you know they have been identified as spam, and redirected along legitimate emails, to your corporate server.
- Quarantine enabled: spams above a certain level of confidence are kept in quarantine on our servers for one month.
Through regular spam reports, you can see the list of all spams that were put in quarantine, and access them.
