Inbox Sentry Email Spam and Security

Protect yourself from viruses, malware, and spam from coming into your email inbox.

Most viruses, Trojan horses, and worms are activated when you open an attachment or clicking a link in an email message. If your email client allows scripting, then it is also possible to get a virus by just opening a message. It’s best to limit what HTML is available in your email messages and protect yourself with a good front end antivirus filter so harmful content never reaches your inbox.

The Inbox Sentry Virus Scanning Engine provides around the clock virus protection with up to the minute defense against the latest Virus and Worm threats. The system identifies and blocks viruses, worms and other and potentially dangerous email attachment types before they are able to reach your mail server or email users.

All email messages are checked against a database of over 200,000 Virus Definitions. If a virus or other dangerous attachment is detected the Inbox Sentry system will immediately block the message from delivery and send it to the system quarantine. The Inbox Sentry system automatically receives updates of Spam Filter Rules and Virus Definitions several times per hour providing up to the minute defense against the latest Virus and Worm threats ensuring effective and accurate Spam and Virus Protection. While other systems have spam detection rates of 40 to 70 percent, the Inbox Sentry system is able to provide high Spam/Virus detection rates of up to 98% or more with very low false positive rates using only the default settings.

These detection rates can be further improved by the automatic self-tuning and learning mechanisms built into the Inbox Sentry system as well as by adjustments made to the Spam Scanning and Filtering engine.

InboxSentry is a stand-alone service that will work with any email provider.
