    Opinions on Web Host Spam Filtering

    I've decided to migrate my domain to a new host after months of dealing with gobs of spam. Since this was the largest deciding factor, whomever I move to needs to keep my inbox relatively clean. I generally use webmail, so the problem has to be mitigated at the source.

    To wit, I've investigated 1&1 and so far am very impressed. Anyone use this company as their host - and more pertinent, how is the email filtering? If no experience with 1&1, how is your experience with your current provider?

    I do not use their webmail much, as I am a Outlook user in XP and Windows Mail in Vista. The spam options have been updated see attachment.

    Re: Opinions on Web Host Spam Filtering

    Thanks, Dave. I'm ready to jump ship, after three days of read-only access to my shared server and loss of some of the files. It's pretty obvious to me as an (ex) IT guy that they had a major hardware failure and restored the machine from a backup that was a few days old. That was just the final straw, though. The spam is ridiculous. Downside of having your own domain(s) I guess. My current host has some form of spam filtering, but all it does is mark the subject line, and precious few messages at that. I like the look of 1&1's spam interface, I don't even have access to that currently - I've been told that it's not user configurable and doesn't need to be. Taking my domains to another company will make more of a statement than complaining to their sales and support staff!

    Re: Opinions on Web Host Spam Filtering

    When I moved my site, I did NOT really move it. I started clean with new layout and all. The switch over took about 2 days for the domain index to catch up, that is when I rebuilt the site, so it was ready when I got to loading the new files.
