Greylisting

Over the next few weeks we are upgrading all hosting accounts with a a new anti spam feature. The upgrades will start with spam server accounts, plus accounts, business users before completing on personal hosting accounts.

In our tests the new anti spam system has reduced incoming receipt of spam email by 90%. The system works by challenging incoming email with a series of basic tests. Those that fail these tests are rejected before they reach your account.

The new feature is known as ‘greylisting’. For more information on the technicalities of this system please click here .

When your server is due for upgrading you will be contacted at your registered email address a week in advance. We appreciate that some users may not want their mail filtered and at this point can disable the feature on an account basis by request. We do however strongly recommend the use of this system.
