Advanced Bayesian pattern matching
Bayesian pattern matching is used to analyze the entire content of incoming email: this prevents the mistakes made by relying on single keywords or rules whilst ensuring the filters are robust to subtle changes in language, deliberate misspellings and tricks typical in SPAM. This allows Hexamail software to provide unrivalled accuracy and reliability when detecting SPAM.
SPF (Sender Policy Framework) checking is fully supported, allowing you to add SPF checking to your existing mailserver. SPF ensures that email is only accepted if it came from the servers designated by the sending domain's policy, where available. For domains that publish SPF records this means you can verify the sender is legitimately allowed to send email from the domain. In particular this can help reduce Phishing, where senders spoof email from another domain.
Domain Keys checks are performed on any Domain Keys signed email. This verifies the sender is allowed to send email from the domain specified. It also verifies that the email has not been tampered with or forged. In particular this can help reduce phishing, where senders spoof email from another domain.
SURBL is an RBL designed to be used to block or tag spam based on URIs (usually their domain names) contained within the message body. It is not a conventional RBL in that it's not intended to block the source of spam messages. Instead, SURBL can be used to block spams based on their message content. http://www.surbl.org/
Neural network sender matching technology
Cutting-edge neural network technology is used to identify suspicious sender addresses with high accuracy and incredible performance. Neural sender matching enables high volumes of emails to be checked in the shortest possible time.
Hexamail provides support for multiple sender and recipient white lists. The white list can be imported, manually created or automatically created and kept up to date through analysis of outgoing email traffic. Domain whitelisting is also possible.
With Hexamail Guard you can optionally enable Challenge-Response features to allow sender verification emails to be sent out. Senders can then verify themselves to have their email accepted and whitelist their address to allow all future emails to pass through unfiltered.
Advanced Image Analysis
Hexamail Guard not only analyses the text of emails but also any embedded images, using the structure of the images to determine whether an email is SPAM or not. Increasingly SPAM email consists entirely of images, and so this technique is essential for effective blocking.
Content and Header checks
Hexamail supports multiple sophisticated header, subject and content checks with configurable rules, keyword filtering and phrase matching lists that can be maintained by the administrator.
POP3 Account downloading and SPAM filtering
Hexamail can download all your user's POP3 accounts, strip out the SPAM and reroute the emails to their corporate mailbox or other email address.
Hexamail features built in anti-phishing protection by recognizing spoofed emails, web links and requests for account details.
If you don't already have an anti virus gateway solution for email processing you can add an Antivirus option to Hexamail Guard, allowing automatic processing of all suspect attachments and elimination of virus, worms, scripts and other malicious content. If you have an existing email antivirus system Hexamail Guard will inter operate with it.
3rd Party DNS Blacklists
Hexamail supports any third party DNS based blacklists (DNS BL or real time black hole lists). These databases can be used to block all email from known SPAM sending email servers and open relays. Choose what to do with matching IP addresses, Reject, BLock, Mark or Weight.
URL DNS checking
URLs contained in the content of email are checked against configurable DNS based databases of known SPAM hosts. Email is blocked if it contains URLs hosted on webservers known to belong to spammers.
Bullet SPAM Quarantine
SPAM detected by Hexamail can be stored in a quarantine for later review. The quarantine allows the administrator to quickly review and send on or delete large numbers of emails with a single click. A special viewing window allows the safe viewing of any suspect email without inadvertently triggering worms, virus or pop ups.
Mark, delete or forward SPAM
Mark SPAM subject lines, delete SPAM over a specified match confidence or forward to user's spam folder, public folder or any other email account.
User SPAM review
The administrator can optionally allow some or all users to review their own quarantined SPAM via a web based interface. Users are automatically alerted to new emails arriving in their quarantine and can empty their quarantine with a single click from the alert email. Alternatively they can login to a secure web interface to selectively delete SPAM email and accept legitimate emails.
Customizable Web Intergace
The web based interface is fully customizable through the built in HTML template manager and editor.
Microsoft Exchange Integration
Hexamail Guard integrates automatically and seamlessly with all versions of Exchange providing straightforward integration and easy administration. Hexamail can integate with Exchange 5.5, 2000, 2003, or 2007 either on the same machine as Exchange or on a separate server if required.
Supports all SMTP servers
Lotus Notes, NTMail, SL Mail, QMail, Exim, IMail, Lotus Domino 5, LSMTP, MailSite, MDaemon, MetaInfo, Sendmail, MS IMS/IIS, Netscape Messaging Server, NTMail, and Post.Office are all supported by Hexamail. Hexamail can be used in conjunction with any SMTP compatible mail server, allowing you the freedom to choose your email server now and in future.
Unrivalled ease of use
Hexamail is dedicated to changing the way business software works: making it easy and productive to use. This reduces configuration mistakes and saves you time and money.
Server based anti-spam
For a corporate anti-spam policy to be successful it must be enforced at the server level removing the need for client-side installs and end-user training. Not only does this ensure the most straightforward maintenance but also ensures the solution is as cost-effective as possible to deploy.
Automatic Internet updates
SPAM and virus adapt and change every day. Any system to detect and eliminate unsolicited email and virus must be kept up to date. Hexamail's software automatically updates itself over the Internet to ensure the latest SPAM and virus can be stopped.
Active Directory Support
Automatically syncs users with Active Directory and allows single sign-on for the web based quarantine
Automatically syncs users with any LDAP server
The easy to use sophisticated administration interface can be used on the same machine or from a remote workstation using a secure communications protocol.
