Exclusive preview on email filtering

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009 by Servage
mailfilterLast fall Servage introduced global server-side spam- and virus-filtering. The anti-spam functionality is powered by a customizable SpamAssassin system, which enables you to set an own set of rules for the handling of junk mail. The virus filter is powered by ClamAV which removes any email that includes malware. Since its introduction the system has identified hundreds of thousands of unsolicited mails being sent to email accounts hosted at Servage. In the meantime a number of customers have requested a filtering option to allow even more advanced and powerful rules for email-handling. With filters one could for example automatically collect messages from a specific sender, addressed to a specific recipient, containing certain words ...

Open source routing anniversary

Monday, February 2nd, 2009 by Servage
network_cableAbout one year ago we gave ourselves the task to get fairly common server hardware perform the tasks of traditional and (very) expensive commercial routers. Our network has been using open source based border routers (BGP/OSPF) for over a year now and performance and availability of the network has improved considerably. Plain simply we can now build better and even more redundancy into our network with the available resources. We chose an open source routing platform that uses a Cisco-like syntax and similar commands. That made the transition convenient and our routing specialists could work with the new system the same way as they were used to. This avoided human errors that are ...

This enables you to prohibit possible intruders to gain access to your account based on their geographic location or IP address. You can enable GeoIP Security in the control panel, where you also have the ability to specify specific countries and IPs to allow access. How does this work? Whenever someone tries to login the user is verified against our database to identify if that particular user is allowed to login from that particular geographic location or IP address. We also created an email ...
