The nature of UCE (unsolicited commercial email) is that once a way has been found to defeat one method, another is found for use by the spammers. The only thing that we can do is try to minimize the spam that actually reaches the inbox. The complete solution toward this goal, also requires some action on the user’s part.
Configuring Your Firewall:
- Once e-mail is flowing through the SpyderMail service, you need to configure your Firewall to only allow inbound access from our IP space.
- Restricting inbound to our delivery servers will stop Spammers from bypassing the protection of the SpyderMail Service by sending Spam directly to your mail server. Don’t forget, spammers can check MX records as easily as we do!
