IMail Secure Server removes the sometimes unnecessary features of collaboration and instant messaging so that it can focus solely on email security through industry leading anti-spam and anti-virus technologies.

Designed for Security

IMail Secure Server removes the sometimes unnecessary features of collaboration and instant messaging so that it can focus solely on performing secure email server functions. IMail Secure Mail Server is built with industry leading anti-spam and anti-virus technologies.

IMail Secure Server provides the following advanced security protection:

  • Integrated CYREN Anti-Spam
  • Integrated CYREN Anti-Virus
  • Integrated CYREN Virus Outbreak Detection

Designed as a Gateway

A mail gateway is a server that is set up in front of your organization’s primary mail server, and serves as a buffer for the internal mail server against the hazards of the internet.

Using IMail Secure Server can serve numerous possible purposes:

  • To process and filter all incoming mail before it is passed on to the internal mail server that delivers the messages. This can include spam and virus filtering, along with other types of filtering as discussed further below.
  • To reduce the amount of traffic to your primary mail server.
  • To enhance security on your network. An e-mail gateway provides a barrier between your internal network and the internet. Set up correctly, a gateway minimizes the access to your internal network should it ever become compromised.

Protection from Hacked Email Accounts

Email accounts are constantly under attack by hackers and spammers. Once an email account has been successfully compromised the victim’s email account is then used to send out spam, viruses and/or malware.

IMail Server’s SMTP Service now has the capability to set limitations for a users outbound messages by disabling or throttling a user’s messages once the maximum count within a certain time interval has been met. Additionally, the server administrator can be notified of the offense. For additional peace of mind, IMail Anti-Virus will provide another level of protection.

Mobile Synchronization:

Stay connected with Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync

More and more business is taking place outside of the office making it critical for companies to enable mobile synchronization for their employees. IMail Server makes all of this possible with the optional integration of Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync.

Features of Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync:

  • ActiveSync provides a direct push of your email
  • Synchronization of calendar, contacts, and tasks in real time
  • Support for all ActiveSync capable devices is included.

Spam Detection and Filtering:

No Spam Folder Necessary

IMail Server Premium is equipped with the industry’s leading anti-spam technology from CYREN. IMail Server Premium utilizes a multi-layered approach to attack spam in real time, detecting and blocking over 98% of spam, phishing, and malware while maintaining the industry’s lowest false positive level.

Layer 1: CYREN’s GlobalView Cloud Service

  • Offers edge detection based on real-time IP reputation
  • Rejects spam during the SMTP transaction, before data is sent saving bandwidth and infrastructure costs
  • Provides local caching of results for increased efficiency

Layer 2: CYREN’s Recurrent Pattern Detection (RPD) Technology

  • Analyzes large volumes of Internet traffic in real time rather than evaluating each individual message
  • Content-agnostic threat protection
  • Multi-language threat detection
  • Multi-format threat detection
  • High performance(~200 msgs/sec)
  • Persistent cache for fast operation after restart
  • Ability to reject messages before the message is accepted for delivery

With the unbeatable combination of CYREN’s near-perfect spam detection, low false positives and easy integration, IMail Server Premium achieves the industry’s best spam detection and accuracy.

Anti-Virus Solution:

Safe. Secure. Peace of Mind.

IMail protects your business and your users from email borne threats by offering Cyren anti-virus technology. Cyren makes use of two different technologies to ensure maximum protection.

IMail Anti-Virus powered by CYREN

The CYREN GlobalView Cloud compiles both historical and up-to-the-minute sender reputation data from highly diverse traffic sources in every country, with coverage from managed services and network hardware devices to desktop software. This patented Recurrent Pattern Detection technology automatically aggregates a high-level view of all senders, distinguishing in real time between legitimate corporate senders, valid publishers, zombies, and spammers/malware distributors.

What Makes IMail Anti-Virus powered by CYREN Different?

  • Multiple detection techniques – a multi-layered platform including heuristics, emulation, and signatures is used for maximum protection
  • Low resource consumption meaning negligible impact on throughput
  • Award-winning technology – received VB100, West Coast Labs and ICSA awards for superior detection rates
  • Requires up to half the server space compared to other leading anti-virus competitors
  • CYREN Virus Outbreak Detection is included at no additional charge

CYREN Virus Outbreak Detection

CYREN VOD is unique from traditional anti-virus solutions in that it develops protection for new emerging viruses or for variants of known viruses that when released in rapid bursts create an outbreak.

How is CYREN VOD different?

  • No signatures – Most AV solutions depend on signature and/or heuristic (rule-based) technology to identify and block viruses. CYREN VOD works independently of signatures, requiring no updates.
  • It’s immediate – With no signatures or updates to wait on, CYREN VOD can effectively start detecting virus outbreaks the moment they emerge.


Anywhere Access

All of the server administration features listed below can be accessed in two convenient ways – through our Console Administrator or remotely through our Web Administrator. Simply put, this allows IMail administrators the convenience of viewing and managing their users and system settings from anywhere in the world.

Both options allow easy administrative access to users, domains, services, log viewing and management along with an intuitive interface for the following set of extensive features.

Anywhere Access

Feature List

  • Single and Group Alias Support
  • List Support with configurable options
  • Create unlimited domains
  • Control Message Size on Mailboxes and Domains
  • Support for Inbound by Domains and Users
  • Outbound Rules Support
  • Active Directory Support
  • Easy List Management
  • Configurable location of logs
  • White Lists
  • Attachment Blocking
  • Copy All Mail
  • External Database support (MS SQL, Access)
  • Use of virtual domains when limited IP addresses are available
  • Unlimited Maximum Mailbox Size
  • Maintain Separate Trailer Messages at Domain Level

External Address Verification:

Use IMail as an email gateway server

Mail Server customers now have the option to add External Address Verification (EAV), allowing IMail to be used as a gateway for an internal server. With the addition of EAV, message recipients can be verified as valid users before the message is accepted, eliminating unnecessary strain on both the gateway server and the internal server.

How It Works

External Address Verification

External Address Verification is used by SMTP in the RCPT TO and VRFY commands. When one of these commands is received, it is first checked for a local host, then the address is passed to EAV where it is sent to several “verifiers” to determine if the message is valid or not. EAV also makes use of an in-memory cache to reduce the number of queries that must be made to the verifiers. Whenever a verifier returns a positive result for an address, that address is added to the cache for a configurable amount of time. The next time that EAV verifies that address, it will be found in the cache first and immediately return a positive result.

All settings for EAV can be easily accessed in the Console or the Web Administrator.

Users have the option to:

  • Enable/Disable
  • Enable for specific domains
  • Set the memory limit (in MB or %) for the memory cache
  • Configure an LDAP/Active Directory verifier

External Address Verification can be added to either IMail Server or IMail Premium at the unlimited user level only.
