Filtering SPAM

The following form will allow Msen users to set the controls on what spam is automatically deleted from the mail server before it is written to the mailbox. Use of this form will cause email to be deleted immediately without chance for retrieval. Patterns definitions for the spam control process are listed on their separate pages.

Policy: Msen does not read customer's email. These filters are automated scripts that do not make moral judgements about the content they process. The "catch phrases" that the filters are built upon are based on what spam the administrators have received on a repetitive basis. Care has been taken in choices to minimize "false positives" that would tag or, if enabled, delete legitimate email. Since no automated system will perform with 100% accuracy for all people, use at your own risk.

Msen has integrated Spam Filtering software on our servers. This software gives you four different choices of Spam Filtering if you elect to use it.

Spam filtering options

- "Spam" Filter - Basic procmail filtering. Matching is based upon the words in the email.

- "Smut" Filter - Filtering is based upon sexual phrases and drug names.

- "Address" Filter - The source IP address is in a database of known spammers or open relays. The current databases are, and

- "All" Filters - Turn on all filter rules.
