Your login here will be your email address and, most likely, your email password….


If your email password doesn’t work, click the Forgot your password or need to create a password? link.

The “spam filter” is really a full content filter. If you want to increase the security/privacy of the messages you send, you can enable additional filters, or set up your own. The included filters, shown above, can actually recognize credit card numbers, social security numbers, profanity, racially insensitive messages, and sexual overtones. If you want to be sure you aren’t ticking off your customers, these are easily enabled. You can deny the delivery of such messages, or quarantine them for review, and more. You can also “silent copy” messages from anyone in your domain to yourself to make sure your employees are on the up and up!
