HELP: What software can I use to help prevent receiving spam?
Spam is a huge problem on the internet with more than 80% of emails sent to the mailservers now being spam. Therefore we strongly recommend that all users have Antispam software installed on your own computers.

The main Anti Spam Software we use ourselves, is the New Zealand Developed Mailwasher which you can download a demo from http://fta.firetrust.com/index.cgi?id=lounge35&page=1 .

If you use a new version of Microsoft Outlook, you may already have a filter built in. If you use an older version, there may not be any spam protection, therefore Spamfighter may be an option, which you can download at this link http://www.spamfighter.com .

There are also hundreds of other Anti Spam software options which integrate with your email software which you will be able to find in Google.

Most of our higher level hosting plans come with server spam filtering built into the hosting control panel. However this spam filtering should never be used as a replacement for your own spam filtering software that you install on your own computer. If your hosting or email plan don't have server spam filtering, and you would like it, please contact us to upgrade your plan.

Please note that if you are forwarding your email from your domain to a third party email account with your ISP or similar, then any server spam filtering that you have setup with us will not apply, as the email is automatically forwarded onto your ISPs mail servers. Therefore you would need to enable spam filtering with your ISP, if they provide it.
