How the Servers check for spam – Full Explanation

Sent 4/6/2004


Still doing some additional “tweaking” on the spam settings on the servers.

As part of these adjustments this evening I prepared a full and complete explanation of the process that all email goes through before being delivered to your in-box. While some spam still gets through the filters we have certainly cut it way back and the amount of email being caught that is actually valid is still running way below 0.75%.

This link will take you to the explanation of how the system works. Incidentally, this link is now included in the bounce message that is generated and sent automatically to anyone that has a message caught in the filters.

As always if you have questions or comments on our service please let us know.
