Spam Filtering

If you use email than the odds are high that you've received spam. Information Technologies uses a two tier approach to preventing spam, a spam filtering firewall and the Junk E-mail Filter in Microsoft Office Outlook 2010. Although you probably receive some spam, without the two prevention tiers your inbox would be inundated with spam.

Anti-spam options
 

Spam firewall
 

The firewall optimizes the processing of each email to maximize performance and process thousands of messages per day. In addition, it  uses outbound filtering techniques including attachment scanning, virus filtering, rate controls and encryption. This helps ensure that all outgoing email is legitimate and virus-free. The firewall is continuously updated with the latest definitions to block  Internet threats.

These instructions tell you how to change the level of protection in the Junk E-mail Filter to keep spam out of your Inbox.
