Antispam and Antivirus Integration
Powerful antispam and antivirus functionality is included with every copy of SmarterMail. However, some users may need extra protection or have fixed infrastructures. The solutions listed on this page have been tested with SmarterMail, but you can integrate almost any command-line scanner or real-time scanner with SmarterMail.
Message Sniffer complements SmarterMail’s built-in antispam and antivirus features and accurately captures more than 99% of spam, viruses, and malware right out of the box. It learns about your environment automatically to optimize its performance and accuracy without your intervention; and it can be easily customized to meet your requirements. Because Message Sniffer runs all of its signatures locally, it doesn’t need to communicate with any services outside of the mail server, making it quicker and more efficient. Furthermore, the database is regularly and automatically updated to protect against new spam and malware attacks. The Message Sniffer solution is available as an integrated add-on to SmarterMail from the SmarterTools website and authorized SmarterTools resellers.
