How does Antivirus and Antispam work for your own mail servers?

Your emails are transmitted through the Hostbasket servers where they are filtered from spam and viruses and then sent to your own mail server. You will not notice any of this and your emails will arrive without any delays.

Hostbasket uses IronPort, a leading company in the field of spam protection. This company develops spam filtering that is much easier than conventional methods. You simply choose one of the four settings.
In addition Hostbasket uses a complete solution with double execution. Even if your own mail server is unavailable, the emails are temporarily stored by Hostbasket. Never again lose an email!

Advanced Antivirus & Antispam settings

In MyAccount you can choose from 4 settings to block spam and viruses:
 
1. Blocking based on the sender’s reputation (SBRS)
We first check the "SenderBase Reputation Score (SBRS)", the reputation of the sender of the emails. All emails of which it is 100% certain that they are spam or contain a virus are blocked. The other emails are delivered to your mailbox. This blocks 95% of all spam emails.
 
2. Blocking based on the sender’s reputation (SBRS) and marking based on the content (Tag spam & newsletters)
Same as level 1, but suspicious emails are marked based on their content.
 
- Newsletters are marked with the notification [NEWSLETTER] in the subject line.
- Possible SPAM (spam score between 40 and 90) is marked with the notification [POSSIBLE SPAM] in the subject line.
- SPAM (spam score higher than 90) is marked with the notification [SPAM] in the subject line.
 
If desired you can configure rules in Outlook so suspicious emails will not be delivered in your active mailbox. Use this setting if you want to have a little more control over the emails.
 
3. Blocking based on the sender’s reputation (SBRS) and blocking based on the content (Drop spam 90+ & Tag spam 40+)
Same as level 1, but suspicious emails are removed or marked in the subject line based on their content.
 
- Newsletters are marked with the notification [NEWSLETTER] in the subject line.
- Possible SPAM (spam score between 40 and 90) is marked with the notification [POSSIBLE SPAM] in the subject line.
- SPAM (spam score higher than 90) is removed so it will not be delivered in your active mailbox.
 
If desired you can configure rules in Outlook so suspicious emails will not be delivered in your active mailbox. Use this setting if you want to have a little more control over the emails.
 
4. Blocking based on the sender’s reputation (SBRS) and blocking based on the content (Drop spam agressive 40+)
Same as level 1, but suspicious emails are removed or marked in the subject line based on their content.
 
- Newsletters are marked with the notification [NEWSLETTER] in the subject line.
- Possible SPAM (spam score between 40 and 90) is removed so it will not be delivered in your active mailbox.
- SPAM (spam score higher than 90) is removed so it will not be delivered in your active mailbox.
 
If desired you can configure rules in Outlook so suspicious emails will not be delivered in your active mailbox. This is the strictest setting.
 
For all Mail Plus mailboxes the filter level of all incoming mails is set to level 1 (SBRS). However, you may always opt for a billing filtering which allows you to access levels 2, 3 and 4. You only pay 1 euro/month per mailbox. Contact our Sales Team on 09 326 90 95.
For all Office Mail mailboxes (Exchange) hosted at Hostbasket the filtering of all incoming mails is set to level 3 but you may select another filter level.
When using Remote anti-virus/anti-spam for your own mail server (in your office, as dedicated server or in colocation), the filter level in your MyAccount is always set to 4 by default.
 
These configurations are always valid for all mailboxes created on a certain domain.
