Reporting Spam

Spam is a problem that we all face.  The problem is, that there is no silver bullet to stop spam in its tracks.  No matter how good of a spam filter we implement, the spammers will inevitably learn how to craft a better spam, and get around it.  So, we give you, the end user, the ability to report to us what you think is spam.  The great thing about the whole system is, that it's completely automated.  You report spam, and our mail system will collect statistics from your reported messages, and train itself to better identify spam.

Server Limitations

By default, all hosting accounts on our shared servers are allowed to send no more than 100 e-mails per hour. This includes e-mail sent via SMTP and by any scripts that may exist on the website(s). We have imposed such a restriction to ensure that our servers are not used to send large scale UBE (Unsolicited Bulk E-mail), which can cause legitimate e-mail to become blocked or rejected by other servers.
