Mainstay Communications Provides New Junk Email and Email Virus Protection

Click Here to login to your Message Center

As part of our commitment to provide the best-possible Internet services, Mainstay Communications has partnered with Postini to provide you the latest tools to help prevent viruses and junk email from reaching your computer. 

The Postini services are private and secure. The junk email and virus protection is an automated process. Nobody has access to your email except you. Nobody will read your email. Your email is not censored, YOU control the filter settings.

Here is a brief overview of the Postini service:

  • Your email passes through Postini's automated filters that detect suspected junk email and viruses.
  • Suspicious email is directed to your personal, web-based, password-protected Message Center (it does not arrive at your computer's in box). Think of this as a quarantine area. In your Message Center you can read the quarantined email online, delete it, or deliver (forward) it to your in box.
  • Initially you should visit your Message Center often because Postini "remembers and learns" from your interaction. As time goes on you will be able to rely on Postini's periodic notifications of your Message Center activity.
  • Postini lets you "block" senders; meaning email from them will always be filtered. Or you can "approve" senders; meaning their email will always be delivered.
  • While this system has proven to be very effective in its ability to filter junk email and email-borne viruses, it is not 100% successful.  Much of its junk mail filtering abilities are determined by individual settings you can control in your Message Center.  Additionally, experience tells us that the system is tremendously effective at stopping virus-borne emails from reaching your computer, however, viruses can also reach you through means other than just email.  Therefore, we continue to encourage all subscribers to use reputable virus scanning software on their computer and keep its definitions current
  • This service is completely controlled by you.
