Good News everyone!

Project Hellfire has been unleashed on spammers. Mailbox spam filtering is powered by an army of SpamAssassin machines in combination with Bogofilter.

We made it configurable to fit your needs. As always, let us know if you have any feedback.

There are three options on how to configure your spam filtering. You can select the appropriate option in the Control Panel when you click on your domain / server name.

  1. Disabled (default)

  2. Delete spam (spam is K.I.A. and you won’t see it)

  3. Mark spam with MIME headers and you decide what to do with it.

Happy sending!
