What do our Users
Think of ScanMail Utilities?
Anyone can make claims about their product. The real question is how do our users feel about the stopping power of the
ptsfilter as it relates
to junk email and viruses. This includes Ads, fraud schemes, porn, viruses,
phishing attempts and any other unsolicted bulk email.

"For years I tried my best to stop spam coming into out library email
boxes by creating listings of banned IPs within Sendmail. And for a
while that worked fairly well. But as more and more staff got Internet
email from our system, more and more spam seemed to find us. It became
obvious last year that I was fighting a losing battle and spending hours
everyday looking up, identifying, reporting abuse, and entering more and
more IPs into our banned list to no avail. Without exaggeration, at least
50% of our email was spam or virus laden. I began the search for an email
scanner that would help put a stop to the spam. I was looking for a
product that was easy to install and easy to use, had good support, and
was not too expensive as our library didn't have a large amount budgeted
Not only did ScanMail fill all of our requirements, but it exceeded our
hopes. The ScanMail staff upgraded our Sendmail version, installed the
mail scanner, and did the basic configuration. They taught me how to work
with the software and make changes. But they did not leave me on my own,
they continue to do system upgrades and put in new pieces like Clamav to
stop virus email and SPF to identify legitimate domains and stop spoofing.
Support responds promptly and efficiently to our logs and is never too busy
to help. Now I spend minutes a week working on spam problems rather than
hours. ScanMail has made our email experience better and safer. I highly
recommend ScanMail to anyone who needs an effective way to stop the spam
and virus email that takes up valuable work time and endangers the network.
In my estimation it is the best return on investment this library has ever

"American Family Online is a nationwide Internet service provider that
makes every effort to protect it's subscribers from destructive Internet
materials including pornography, vulgarity, violence and other illegal
activities. We had developed our own web filter, but our email filtering
was a problem. Anything we could find to do the job, we could not afford.
Anything we could afford, could not do the job. Then searhing the
Internet one day, I came across the ScanMail Utilities product. This was
just the product we needed. It is flexible, powerful, effective and also
available at a price we could afford. Now our subscribers are protected
from the vast majority of destructive spam mail (98% or more).
Support from the company has been exceptional! From the installation to
the daily maintenance tuning, every known problem has been corrected
quickly. Also, many enhancements suggestions have been implemented in new
releases making the product even more effective for us. I could not be
happier with the product and support! Thanks for being there for us
