OpenAccess customers have been using MailGuard for a few years now and we have had an excellent experience with it. Once MailGuard is properly trained it is very good at making sure you get the mail you want and do not get the mail you do not want.. Unfortunately, only you know the kinds of e-mail you do and do not want. MailGuard makes a basic guess depending on whether you choose 'off', 'low', 'medium' or 'high' sensitivity settings, but after that it needs you to tell it which e-mails are spam and which are not, especially when you first begin using it.
MailGuard stores both your good and bad e-mails for you to review and teach it your preferences, which means that if there is an e-mail that was wrongly tagged, you can quickly login, mark it is 'good' and it will be in your inbox a couple minutes later.
The whitelist features makes it great for mailing lists you may be subscribed to. In particular, many mailing lists because of the nature of what they are and how they are delivered, frequently get mis-tagged as spam. Just recover those from your MailGuard spam box and make sure they are white listed and you will always get them again, all the time.
As MailGuard is new for NAS.COM customers, we will be informally tracking the most common questions and answers about how the system works and how to use it and finally get our website here updated with that information.
