Virus & Spam Protection

Virus Protection

Protect your computer against malicious viruses, worms and trojans with our advanced virus protection system. This new service has now been made available within customers’ online Control Panel but is set to ‘Off’ as default. This gives customers the flexibility to turn it on and off as required.

Once activated, all incoming email messages are individually scanned for suspicious content. Disguised, encoded and even compressed attachments are extracted in full and compared to a comprehensive database of known viruses.

This database is updated every 2 hours to ensure rapid response when a new threat emerges.

Virus protection is bundled for free with hosting accounts from StartUpHost+ and above and all 4 e-mail packages.

Spam Filtering

Automated, advanced protection from unsolicited junk mail.

Illegal spammers use a wide range of tricks to circumvent standard email verification. But there are a number of tell-tale signs that can still be used to identify the vast majority. The spam filter uses a database of thousands of common spam emails and email addresses, plus additional algorithms to block almost all unsolicited mail.

Spam filtering can be activated from your online control panel and is bundled for free with all email packages and hosting accounts from StartUpHost+ and above.
