A variety of useful statistics are available to help you measure the volume of SPAM being blocked, the percentage of received email that is SPAM and the SPAM per hour.

SPAM Detection

Hexamail offers more detection options than any other product, allowing you to trap the maximum amount of SPAM and at the same time ensure your legitimate emails never get blocked

Country Detection

Sender country detection allows you to weight, block or delete email originating from particular countries

Advanced Rules

Advanced expression matching allows you to customize the SPAM blocking to your needs. Allow, Mark, Weight, Block or Delete email senders, subjects, content, urls, or attachments matching your own defined rules. Rules can include wildcards, substrings, words, regular expressions and boolean operators.

SPAM Actions

Hexamail Guard allows the ultimate flexibility in dealing with SPAM. You can simply list incoming SPAM to a file, forward all SPAM to a nominated email account, mailbox or public folder, mark the emails and send to the recipients, block the SPAM in a quarantine for later review by the Administrator or users, or delete SPAM immediately.

Live Activity Display

Live activity display shows incoming and outgoing connections as they happen and allows kicking and blocking of connected IPs and sender addresses

Bayesian Pattern Matching

Bayesian Pattern Matching ensures you can take advantage of the most effective SPAM blocking available. Hexamail Bayesian analysis not only inspects the text of the email but also other features drawn from heuristics. This results in unrivalled SPAM recognition rates and almost zero false positives. Each email is given a SPAM score: you can choose to perform different actions on SPAM based on the scores. Choose from marking, forwarding, blocking, or deleting

SPAM Management

Hexamail's unique highly usable SPAM Quarantine allows efficient single-click actions to be performed on blocked SPAM. In a single click you can release an email, whitelist a sender, mark an email subject, forward an email to another recipient or mailbox or delete SPAM

User Web SPAM Management

Version 2.0 sees the introduction of user-based SPAM quarantine review. Now email alerts can be sent to users advising them of the SPAM blocked for them. Each user can login to a secure web interface to review their blocked SPAM on a single low-bandwidth web page without need to download all their SPAM to their client. Each user can build up their own individual whitelist of senders they prefer not to block in future, ensuring false positives are history.

User SPAM Alert Email

Users can be alerted to SPAM when a trigger amount is reached or emails have been quarantined for a specified number of hours. They can review and delete all SPAM directly from the alert email, or login to the web based quarantine to review individual messages


Award winning antivirus scanning, from Clam, can be optionally added to Hexamail Guard to protect your users from worms, virus, trojans and other malicious content. If you have an existing antivirus solution, don't worry! Hexamail will run alongside any existing anti virus solution too!


The legitimizer allows you to add text and HTML disclaimers to all outbound email. You can select different signatures for each email domain. HTML can be edited using a WYSIWYG editor or directly by editing the HTML source. Automatic intelligent fuzzy text matching is used to detect any existing disclaimer in the outbound email to avoid re-insertion of the same signature again. This helps prevent multiple disclaimers being inserted into email chains and the resulting email size increases.
