About MX-Relay

MX-Relay is a successful European hosted anti-spam email filtering provider, providing service to an international clientele with data centres primarily geo-located in the Netherlands

Our Work

MX-Relay have been awarded a 4.4 functionality rating and a 4.6 Real Time emulation rating.

MX-Relays core HTML admin / user interface is lean and clean which makes the system easy to navigate and simple to gather mail flow data.

Mail flow data can be viewed very quickly after transmission in a table format and can be exported to several different formats.

A positive bonus in comparison to other systems that we have compared, is that admin’s have a vast array of traffic mail flow reporting functions available, which can be scheduled for email generation at ease.

A small example of reports such as: Top Spam Senders (From): Top Spam Recipients (To): Top Viruses: Top SPF Violations: Top RBL Matches: Email Encryption Details: Policies Triggering Encryption: False positives: False negatives

Additional features include a very useful message tracking log facility that enables admin’s to view the full SMTP header, additional and separate Bayesian Data view and the ability to download the facilities data for analysis before releasing the email in question.

The system also provides the ability for admin’s to de-activate virus filtering completely, which of course is never recommended, but ultimately the functionality is there.

Some default file extensions are blocked/quarantined by default which is to be expected and additional file extension blocking can be requested via email.

All in all MX-Relays service is a solid, good service with the ability for customization, including Enforcing inbound and outbound TLS which satisfies the reasonable safeguards required within US HIPAA legislation.

The only noticeable negative is that data centre positioning is purely confined to Europe, which may deter some potential US / North American customers.
