For enterprise organizations, Web hosts or ISPs -- or any business, really -- that manage multiple mail server installations, keeping spam settings consistent across those servers has its challenges. SmarterMail makes it easy to use the same set of antispam rules for all of the mail servers across your organization by containing all global spam settings in a single XML file. This allows you to configure a solid set of antispam rules on one server, then easily upload that server's antispam XML to any SmarterMail server - right from the Web interface! As an added bonus, email administrators can even work together to create and share their antispam XML files, combining their experience and understanding to create the most reliable settings available.
