Virus Scanning Service
Price: Varies. Contact us for specific configurations. Description: E-Mail Virus Scanning Service is an option available with both our E-Mail Hosting and E-Mail Spooling services. E-mail is now one of the most common entry points for viruses into your company's network. ETRN.com's Virus Scanning service prevents virus infected e-mail messages from reaching your user's inboxes. Our server also helps to prevent the damaging liability of sending virus infected e-mail messages. When used in combination with effective firewall policies our service can be your e-mail DMZ. This can also help reduce the cost of securing your network. Benefits: As part of our security in depth approach, our Virus Scanning Services uses multiple virus scanners to scan your e-mail. Each virus scanner presents its own strengths and weaknesses. This means no single virus scanner can fully protect against all possible threats. By simultaneously using multiple virus scanners we can achieve much higher security than is possible with only one virus scanner. Our use of multiple virus scanners also enables us to be vendor independent and use the best virus scanners available on the market. To further improve virus detection rates, our system checks for virus signature updates multiple time daily. This combination gives us exceptionally high detection rates and helps prevent new viruses from escaping detection. This service uses either our E-Mail Hosting Service or our E-Mail Spooling Service to handle the delivery of incoming e-mail.

We Answer Your Questions: FAQ
Q: What is the maximum e-mail attachment size?
A: The ETRN.com e-mail servers do not limit the size of individual e-mail attachments. The ETRN.com e-mail servers do impose a 400 MB maximum total message size limit. Individual customers can choose a smaller message size limit. We can also customize the handling of "over-sized" e-mails. Please contact us to discuss your specific needs. A couple of important facts:
1. Attachments are typically encoded in what is called Base64. As a result, the actual length of MIME-compliant Base64-encoded binary data is usually about 137% of the original file size.
2. E-mails often contain both plain text and HTML components. This also increases the overall size of the e-mail.
