How do I keep my mail server secure?

Securing Your Mail Server

Like taxes and death, spam seems to be an inevitable part of life these days. We all receive it in our inboxes, but where are the spammers sending it from? Secure your mail server so the right recipients get your emails and they don't end up in a spam folder.

-If you have a wireless connection, be sure to password protect it. Spammers will find unprotected connections and send spam.

-Make sure your mail server has a legitimate and qualified domain name. Even if your email address has your company name, your IP address could be generic and therefore get pushed into a spam folder.

-Stay on top of security patches and anti-virus software and keep your mail server up-to-date.
