SPAM Blocking

Hexamail's anti-SPAM module eliminates the cost, time and frustration your workers spend on unsolicited E-mail (junk/SPAM) by blocking the majority of SPAM emails before they ever reach the user. Using automatic built in heuristics combined with all the best known techniques such as pattern matching, connection restrictions, ORB, real-time black hole lists and any desired additional administrator controlled rules it offers the most comprehensive toolbox for effective SPAM blocking available. The combination of best of breed SPAM blocking techniques ensure almost all SPAM is stopped in its tracks, while the automatic analysis of outgoing email traffic ensures false positives are minimal. The SPAM filtering software is entirely under your control, with no privacy, security risks and no additional latency introduced into your email system as is the case with many hosted solutions.

Instead of having to laboriously enforce corporate signatures in every email client in your organization, Hexamail Guard allows you to configure a corporate signature once and have it automatically added to all outgoing email. This helps prevent additional network traffic from redundant signatures on internal emails and ensures you can be confident that every external email will contain the required signature.

In some instances it is desirable to prevent emails to or from certain sources or destination companies. For example, perhaps you wish to ensure that no emails from recruitment agencies or ex-employees reach your staff, or prevent all outgoing emails to a competitor. In other situations it is the contents of the email that requires blocking. This can often be outgoing or incoming offensive material, such as pornography, swearing, or other undesirable material. Blocking works in concert with alerting to ensure that emails can be systematically blocked, stored and a nominated party alerted to the incidence of the blocked email.

Incoming emails can place a huge burden on the nominated recipient. Often several email addresses are provided publicly for information, questions and other telemarketing activities. More often than not emails arrive to all addresses about a diversity of subjects, with little relationship between the email address and the subject matter. For example, a company-wide email address such as mail@yourcompany.com will receive speculative employment queries, requests for information, invitations to tender, unsolicited junk mail, technical support questions etc. etc.

Having a single nominated recipient quickly results in the recipient becoming over-burdened with email. Studies show that having multiple recipients results in no one giving the incoming message stream the required attention.

The solution? Intelligently route each incoming mail based on the nature of the subject, content, and any attachment to the most suitable respondent recipient.

Routing uses rules concerning the subject line, contents, and previous message chain to ensure that the correct recipient is initially identified and then continues the correspondence when required.
Incoming emails are checked against a configurable routing list. Matching emails are then passed through a Bayesian language detection algorithm to determine the language the email is written with close to 100% accuracy. The email is then rerouted to a different address depending on the language it is written in.

Hexamail Archiver module provides is a centralized automatic email archiving solution. Highly efficient full-text indexing and compression algorithms ensure that the most scalable and high performance email archive is generated entirely automatically from all of your email. Hexamail's email archive software leverages state of the art indexing and compression technology to create the most compact and high performance index of email data. Inferior solutions often simply push emails to relational databases or worse, file systems. Such systems suffer from poor scalability, lengthy query/discovery times and extremely high storage requirements: often requiring more space for the archive than the original emails!
Compliance Store 100% of your email in full original MIME format  
Discovery Use the live search facilities to allow users to access their old email  
Scalable Store many years of email in a single server  
Compressed Unique MIME compression algorithms ensure most compact storage  
Full Text Full text weighted queries provide relevant retrieval  
Secure Enable SSL archive web interface for maximum security  
  • High speed archiving
    Native high-performance C++ archiving code ensures that emails are archived and indexed in realtime. The unsurpassed performance allows the archive to be used live by end-users to retrieve old, deleted, or difficult to find emails from a web-interface.
  • Massively Scalable
    Archiving of 100s of millions of emails in a single archiver is possible, allowing many years of emails to be archived on a single server or drive.
  • Low Storage Requirements
    All email content (MIME) is retained compressed, allowing accurate records to be retained while minimizing storage. Emails are automatically deduplicated. Save costs of storages devices, upgrading servers and backup time and facilities.
  • Fulltext search
    Full-text Bayesian weighted indexing automatically takes place on archiving. This allows your valuable resource of archived emails to be leveraged for knowledge management, auditing and discovery within your organization. Bayesian analysis leads to highly relevant results to searches.
  • Genuine Archiving
    Some inferior archiving solutions simply push email content into a relational database. This can be costly in database licenses, slow to retrieve email and extremely demanding of disk space and other machine resources. Be sure to check the licensing implications and costs of such systems before purchase. Hexamail is a complete solution requiring no third party database licenses.
  • Secure
    Archiving takes place on your servers, within your network. Sensitive emails need never leave your organization, eliminating trust, hacking, or security breach concerns typical of third party service based archive solutions providers.
  • Active Directory Integration
    Active Directory integration allows automatic import of your users and restriction of their access to only their emails
  • SSL
    Full secure SSL access to web based knowledge management, discovery and search interfaces.
  • Long term retention
    Content can be retained for periods matching typical regulatory requirements such as Sarbanes Oxley, European Union ISP Communications Data retention, SEC Rules, NASD, HIPAA and Graham-Leach-Bliley Act.
  • Regulatory Adherence
