What is MailRoute?
MailRoute is a service that sits between your emailbox and the rest of the world. It filters spam and viruses out of your email; bad mail is deleted, suspicious mail is quarantined, and clean mail is delivered.
As an end-user, you can simply sit back and enjoy the safe and secure spam and virus free email environment that your email system administrators have created for you.
From within this email notification you can view a list of new mail in your quarantine. You can view each item, release mail from quarantine so that it is delivered to your mailbox, or Allow and release it.
Allow means that mail from that domain or mailbox will always be allowed through to you and will not be filtered (except for viruses).
We recommend not having Allow lists of major or popular domains (like banks, etc) or freemail domains such yahoo, gmail, hotmail etc as it allows forged emails through no matter how spammy they are.
The frequency of notifications can be set to individual needs; e.g. hourly, daily, twice weekly. Keep in mind that the notifications are only sent if there is new mail received.
