MetroNet has launched Port 995, a virus-scanned user-controlled email management service designed to cater specifically for the requirements of small and medium-sized businesses

Port995 offers organisations the ability to manage all email requirements safely and securely without the need to run their own email server or rely on their ISP. The service runs on a pay-as-you-use basis with control provided through an on-line administration panel. Using this facility a central administrator sets up and manages all features, including unlimited email addresses and advanced email forwarding, using new or existing domain names. Email addresses, autoresponders and filters can be added or changed as and when they are required and they become instantly operational.

Of particular benefit for SMEs are sophisticated filtering tools to eliminate ‘spam’ and the application of Sophos Anti-Virus technology to perform essential virus checking on both incoming and outgoing email.

Port995 is available over secure connections (SSL/TLS) and uses a whitelist/blacklist system for eliminating unwanted emails. Autoresponders can be set up for any email address, and mail filtered to various IMAP folders.

“Port995 has been developed to meet the needs of businesses who do not have or want their own email server, but nevertheless require flexibility and would prefer not to be reliant on an ISP for setup and maintenance. Losing email for just a few days can be devastating for many businesses. Anyone who has ever had to change ISPs will be only too well-aware of the difficulties and frustrations,” said Paresh Morjaria, MetroNet’s managing director.

“Our service also offers peace of mind. Just knowing that incoming and outgoing mail will be screened with a top-of-the range anti-virus product which is constantly up-dated makes this service well worthwhile. Port995’s advanced filtering facilities are designed to eliminate much of the unwanted and time-wasting bulk mail which currently floods the average email inbox.”
