This concerns an e-mail relay server which acts as an intermediate station between the exterior (Internet) and the institution's own mail server. This gateway can therefore protect the institution's internal messaging, since all incoming e-mails are checked before reaching the institution's mail server.

Service characteristics

  • detection and marking of spam (various types of markings possible)
  • automatic update of virus definitions
  • direct deletion of messages marked as spam/virus at the gateway (by default, all marked messages are delivered to the institution's internal mail server)
  • analysis of documents attached to e-mails (infected attachments are automatically deleted)
