Q: Can your shared servers scan incoming/outgoing email for viruses and spam?

A: We do not scan your email for viruses. You should have an antivirus scanner installed on your home computer.

We do provide Spam Assassin free in Cpanel and LPCP. Spam Assassin will catch many but not all viruses and spam coming in. It can be trained to scan even better:

You can also create email filters, and if you set your Default Address under Mail to :fail: or :blackhole:, emails to email accounts you have not actually created will be bounced or deleted. Spammers and viruses often fake addresses on a domain to send to you.

There are some commonly used email addresses you may want to avoid such as info, sales, admin, and webmaster. Spammers often try those.
