How Does Our ISP Fight Spammers?
We start by hating spammers. They are the businesses that send out mass e-mails to any account that they can find. They buy customer lists and they also send out e-mails to every common name at any ISP that is on the Internet. We also fight them in the following ways:
We don't sell our client lists to anyone. We never have done this and we never will.
We don't allow our customers to spam. We have strict limits on how many e-mails can go out from any single customer in an hour. If we catch a customer spamming then we disable their account.
We require something called SMTP Authentication on our mail system so that our customers have to login to the mail system to send out mail. This stops outsiders from sneaking into our mail system to spam.
