High Performance Preconfigured Amavisd-new Anti-spam Mail Gateway Servers Available

Spam mails are now part of our every day life. Almost everyone using one or more mail addresses get spam mails or unwanted junk mails. Most businesses and popular websites face an increasing influx of spam mails as the global internet activity continues to grow. We provide web and mail server services for many such high traffic websites. The amount of spam traffic such sites have is way more than normal. Our clients and their employees prefer no spam mails into their business mailboxes and we as custom solution provider have to deliver what they ask for. To serve the purpose we build shared anti-spam mail gateways using Amavisd-new.

Amavisd-new is a high-performance and reliable interface between mailer (MTA) and one or more content checkers: virus scanners, and/or Mail::SpamAssassin Perl module. It is written in Perl, ensuring high reliability, portability and maintainability. It talks to MTA via (E)SMTP or LMTP protocols, or by using helper programs. No timing gaps exist in the design, which could cause a mail loss. Amavisd-new is a basically an interface which uses a "scan and pass" method for both inbound and outbound mails. This functionality is very similar to Google's Postini Mail scanning services or the Barracuda Spam Firewall services. While other such services require a good amount of financial investment, amavisd-new can run off a normal Linux machine and is open-source.

We are now providing both dedicated anti-spam gateway servers and shared anti-spam gateway services as part of our custom solutions services. The dedicated anti-spam mail gateway servers can scan both your inbound and outbound mails for spam content,viruses and phishing content. They minimize the impact of spamĀ  mails on your business and discard most junk. The dedicated anti-spam mail gateways are fully managed along with any custom configurations that needs to be done to your current mail servers as well. We currently have prebuilt tailor made gateways available to work with Cpanel servers. All mail servers and control panels are supported on these gateways but for any control panel or setup other than cpanel, the gateways need to be custom built. Amavisd-new uses spamassassin and Clamav Antivirus on these Cpanel mail gateway servers to scan the mails.

We are also offering shared anti-spam gateway services currently. These services are specifically for businesses who have moderate mail activity and cannot afford dedicated anti-spam servers. This service is currently in beta testing phaze and you can email us at betatesting at to get a shared anti-spam gateway account with us. Please note that currently only cpanel servers are supported for the shared anti-spamĀ  gateway services and you would need a cpanel based dedicated server or VPS to be able to use this service.

Please feel free to contact us for any queries about the anti-spam mail gateway service.
