(Details behind the "Read more" link...)
We support and recommend the following security options, at least some of which your mail client should implement:
Mail Filtering, Antivirus, and Spam
Our IMAP server supports the Sieve mail filtering language. You can configure Sieve filters to automatically deliver messages into subfolders, send vacation messages when you're out of town, and much more. There is a web interface to configure your filters which you can access at https://hexogen.explosive.net/smartsieve. Keep reading for an example of how to use Smartsieve to set up a filter.
Your incoming email is automatically protected against spam and viruses. You will still receive some spam because we delete only those mails which are clearly Spam (score more than 20 points on SpamAssassin), or fail the virus checks. Anything that might be a legitimate mail gets tagged and delivered. If you want to filter out these spams, follow these steps:
Conditions: If mail header: "X-Spam-Flag" contains: "YES" Actions: File into: [Pick mailbox]
You can have up to 200MB of mail on the server. To find out how much mail you're currently using, log into Webmail; the bar in the top left corner of the screen shows how much you've used and what percentage of the quota limit that comprises. Once you hit your quota, you will not be able to receive new mail! Messages will bounce back to their senders with a message saying you're out of storage space, until you bring your usage back down below the limit by deleting some old mail. If you are a really high-volume mail user and want to negotiate a higher quota limit, please send an email to email@example.com, we'd be happy to discuss the options with you.
