Internet Exchange Messaging Server
The Internet Exchange Messaging Server (IEMS) is a highly modular
and scalable open architecture messaging system. It can be used from small
single machine installations to fully distributed systems linking
geographically distributed sites into a common set of logical domains.
Its various components can be run on a single machine or in a distributed
environment. Administrators can install IEMS on Windows 98 and ME
(Anti-Virus Detached Machine), NT, 2000, and XP. For Linux administrators,
IEMS can be installed on RedHat Linux 6.2 through 9.0; Mandrake
8.2 through 9.1; SCO Linux Server 4.0 (United Linux 1.0); RedFlag,
and Cosix (CS&S).
A technical introduction and specifications to IEMS can be found
here. In additional all
IEMS Documentation is freely downloadable.
Total Spam Integration
Are you missing valuable messages due to over agressive
spam filters? Still getting the spam mail while throwing away the good
stuff? The reason is simple - most systems apply one or a few specific
anti-spam measures in isolation hoping to solve the entire spam problem.
There is no single "silver bullet" for solving spam. In fact, get a
group of people together and chances are you won't even get them to all
agree to what spam really is!
Two types of spam control exist within conventional
systems today - system level checks performed by the backend mail servers
responsible for storing and transmitting email, and user checks performed
by the users mail client. If it is next to impossible for a group of
people to come to a common definition as to what constitutes spam for
them, what are the chances that a mail administator will be able to
accomplish this through filtering policies on the backend for an entire
organization? It is this problem that creates backend policies which do
not work for most users.
Filters designed to be incorporated into the users mail
client are almost always confined to performing some kind of content
analysis on the message - AFTER it has been received and all knowledge of
what machine on the other end sent it are lost.
Internet Exchange Messaging Server solves these problems
by totally integrating spam detection, handling, and decision making
across the entire messaging system - from connection controls through to
the end user mail client. IEMS spam control measures include SMTP connection
controls (site and Internet blacklisting), mail relay, MTA level content
analysis, user mail sorting, and user directed Bayesian filtering. Site
administrators are able to define site wide spam security policies, while
deferring decisions on many of the spam detection methods to the end
user, including SMTP connection controls.
This combination of SMTP controls, Content Filters,
Bayesian Filters, DNS Blacklists, and the integrated extension of these controls to
the end users allows for an extremely flexible protection system, designed
to block the maximum number of problem messages with no collateral damage.
More Than Just The Best Spam Protection
IEMS is much more than just great spam protection. It is a
complete email solution. Some of the many features include anti-virus
scanning, attachment filtering at the MTA level, distribution list manager, batch
SMTP, connector modules to legacy mail environments such as Lotus cc:Mail and Notes,
and more. Messages can be retrieved from the IEMS Message Store using any standard
POP3 or IMAP4 capable client (Outlook Express, Eudora, Evolution, etc), as well as
the customizable IEMS Web Mail Client. The Web Mail client also supports private
and public address books as well as online file storage through web folders. IEMS
also supports Outlook compatible calendaring and scheduling, allowing for a natural
migration path from Microsoft Exchange.
IEMS can also be easily extended using open API's provided by
IMA. Third party developers can build custom applications, such as gateways, filter
modules, archiving agents, mail clients and more. The
Programmers Toolkit provides all the tools necessary. Programming environments
supported include C/C++ and PHP.
Systems That Grow With You
IEMS is licensed in either Standard Enterprise Edition or Professional
Enterprise Edition modes. Both editions are identical in terms of funcionality with
the exception that the Professional Enterprise includes cc:Mail and Lotus Notes connectors
and also has the ability to operate across distributed systems. Distributed operation
allows for gradual and effortless expansion of capabilities as the processing needs of
the organization grow. 75-User Standard Enterprise Edition licenses
are provided free of charge to all sites that register with IMA. Standard Enterprise
licenses can be upgraded at any time to Professional Enterprise Edition by only applying a
new license certificate - no need to reinstall, making migration painless.
