Mail server adds filtering
Post.Office, a scalable SMTP/POP3/IMAP email server, has been updated to version 3.8.4, with numerous security and spam-fighting upgrades. The 3.8.4 update has also added Mac OS X Leopard support. The update includes an upgraded spam filter, which can now be imported, exported and disabled, and adds open-source plug-in support for additional filtering abilities. The spam filter's SpamAssassin spam detector and ClamAV virus scanner have been updated as well. SpamAssassin has new filtering rules and update capabilities, while ClamAV can now receive automatic bi-weekly virus updates.
Post.Office also has WEBmail, a web-based mail client for remote access, as an add-on feature. The new software runs on Mac OS X 10.4 and higher. Post.Office is $350 for a 100 mailbox, 10 list system, with the add-on WEBmail costing $275 for 100 users. Other bundles are available.
The mail server features ease-of-use design and operates independently of the host computer, preventing security breaches through email attacks. It also offers auto-reply capabilities and list management.
