Introducing New Anti-Spam Measures

Implementing anti-spam measures is very much a game of cat and mouse. As measures become implemented, spammers find new ways of working around them.

In order to continue to protect our silomail.com domain, and the thousands of email addresses it supports, we are introducing a new layer to protect against the silomail.com domain getting banned on the Internet, which would result in interruption to anybody who uses it for email.

Each @silomail.com email address is now limited to sending 130 messages per day. The average residential user will never even come close to this ceiling, however having it in place is a simple yet very effective mechanical safeguard against an individual’s account or computer becoming compromised, in turn threatening the reputation of the entire mail domain on the Internet.

You may be wondering what else can be done to protect against these threats. The easiest yet most important step to be done is confirming your email password is secure. A secure password will typically be in excess of 7 characters in length, and include a mix of lowercase and uppercase letters, numbers, and symbols. Beyond this, ensuring your computers are clean of infections like Trojan Horse viruses is a vital step to prevent your account from being accessed from the inside. If you are looking for an effective anti-virus solution you can check out our new exclusive cloud protection services from our partner McAfee.

Finally, if you use your @silomail.com address for things such as legitimate mailing or distribution lists you may find you will exceed the 100 message limit. If this happens you will receive an automated message from our server explaining the situation. For these extenuating circumstances where the limit will regularly be exceeded by legitimate usage we can add an exception to raise the limit of your particular account.  Submit a support ticket to apply for an exception if this is the case.
