Anti-Virus and Anti-Spam Mail Scanning Service
Protect yourself from virus infected email, unwanted SPAM and excessive bandwidth on your network caused by these emails.

This service is provided for a fixed fee of £35 (+vat)per domain per year

The Way to the Web Anti-Virus and Anti-Spam Scanning Service provides the following:

  • Email scanned by anti-virus software with removal and quarantine of infected attachments
  • Anti-virus updates are run hourly to ensure the latest detection technology is used
  • Email scanned for dangerous file attachments with removal and quarantine of the files
  • Email scanned by anti-spam RealTime BlackHole Lists (RBL) to identify known/likely spammers
  • Email scanned by anti-spam software that performs:
    • Email Header Analysis: spammers use a number of tricks to mask their identities, fool you into thinking they've sent a valid mail, or fool you into thinking you must have subscribed at some stage
    • Email Text Analysis: again, spam mails often have a characteristic style (to put it politely), and some characteristic disclaimers text
    • Razor: Vipul's Razor is a collaborative spam-tracking database, which works by taking a signature of spam messages. Since spam typically operates by sending an identical message to hundreds of people, Razor short-circuits this by allowing the first person to receive a spam to add it to the database -- at which point everyone else will automatically block it

Important Notice: Please read this list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) with regard to this service. You must understand the consequences and limitations of this service before using it.

The service that we provide will, by default, indicate whether an email is likely to be spam and is forwarded on to you as normal for you to filter with your email client. We do not bounce any email that is to be delivered to you, unless you ask us to.

For further information, please read the FAQ.
