Sanitize and clean incoming/outgoing mail
The Anomy sanitizer is what most people would call “an email virus scanner”. The most important jobs that the sanitizer can do for you - it can scan email attachments for viruses.
Other things it can do
- Protect you from email-based break-in attempts which exploit bugs in common email programs Outlook, Eudora, Pine, ….
- Block or “mangle” attachments based on their file names. This way if you don’t need to recieve e.g. visual basic scripts, then you don’t have to worry about the security risk they imply the ILOVEYOU virus was a visual basic program. This lets you protect yourself and your users from whole classes of attacks, instead of blocking individual exploits.
