All incoming mail addressed to a Neomailbox account is checked for viruses and malicious content by Clam AntiVirus.
If a message contains a virus or a worm, it is immediately rejected with an error message to the sending system. This prevents viruses and malware from ever making it to to your account.
Clam AntiVirus is the leading Open Source AntiVirus system, optimized for mail scanning. It is very actively developed and the virus databases are kept up-to-date.
ClamAV is able to detect over 20000 viruses, worms and trojans, in various attachment types including compessed RAR (2.0), Zip, Gzip, Bzip2, Tar, MS OLE2, MS Cabinet files, MS CHM (Compressed HTML) and MS SZDD file types, as well as Portable Executable files compressed with UPX, FSG, and Petite.
Unlike the case with spam, which can often be quite difficult to distinguish from legitimate mail, messages containing viruses, trojans or worms can be identified with a very high degree of accuracy.
That's because viruses, worms and trojans need to be run as programs by the victim computer. So all malware needs to contain those precise sequences of 1s and 0s that makes it work as a computer program.
This is convenient, as it supplies us a method to accurately identify malware - just look for those precise sequences that each program (malware or not) must contain in order to function.
The sequences used are quite long, so the chance of legitimate email containing one of those unique sequences is pretty much zero, and we can go ahead and reject mail containing malware right when the sending server is trying to deliver it to your account.
Our secure email accounts protect your privacy and security in many more ways too.
We provide full SSL session encryption for email and web mail access, so you can read and send email without exposing yourself to privacy threats such as hackers and identity thieves, or nosy employers, neighbours and government agencies.
For added security we offer the option of two factor authentication with a hardware token which eliminates the threat of having your account access details stolen by malicious programs that may be infecting a computer you use to access your account.
We're so sure you'll love the service that we offer a watertight, unconditional 30-day money back guarantee if you're not completely happy with your account for any reason.
