Email Spam and Virus Filtering

How many spam messages do you receive each day?
Are you missing email messages because they got blocked?
Are you fully protected from viruses on all of your machines?

AppTech has partnered with McAfee to eliminate spam and viruses from your email systems.  Not only does it remove those unwanted messages, but it provides the customer complete control over what is received and what is rejected. 

Here is how it works.  Instead of an email message getting sent directly to your email system, it first gets passed through the filtering service at McAfee.  This service scans the message for viruses and grades the message through its award winning spam filter.  If the message passes inspection it is sent to you.  If it does not pass inspection it is either deleted or quarantined.  As the user, you can then review the quarantined messages and if something is not spam, you can retrieve it yourself.
