Delivery Method

(Professional and Enterprise Editions) SpamStopsHere Professional and Enterprise Editions support multiple mail servers, and the ability to specify how you want us to distribute the load among them.

Send to Email Hosting System

Select this if you are also using our Email Hosting service.

Round Robin

(Default) Select this if you want incoming mail distributed evenly among your mail servers. For example, if you have 3 mail servers, roughly a third of your incoming mail will be sent to each server in an alternating fashion.

Failover

Select this if you have a primary mail server and one or more backup servers. SpamStopsHere will send emails to the first server in the list as long as it can receive mail, then to the next server in the list as long as it can receive mail, and so on.

Mail Servers

List the IP address(es) or hostname(s) of your mail server(s), each on a separate line, so we can deliver your mail to you.

We initially populate this field for you when you sign up for SpamStopsHere and ask you to verify it during the easy setup process.

MX Notifications

If Enabled, an email will be sent to your technical contact if our SpamStopsHere detects that your MX records are incorrect. We recommend that you enable this option.
