Since then, Gecad refocused on providing new, revolutionary messaging platforms under the name AXIGEN.[…]

Security and Filtering
With huge amounts of spam, malware and viruses coming 24/7 from all over the world, the true power of a mail server solution might just stand in its ability to filter out these pests constantly while still allowing legit emails to get through.

This service can also be accessed from more than one location, giving administrators the ability to set access rules for specific IPs.
