Service Features

This section provides detailed explanations of how various features of the AcceptIO service work.  If any explanation is unclear or if you need further information, please contact AcceptIO support.

Catch-all Mailboxes

Details

If you own your own domain, there is an optional AcceptIO feature called a "catch-all" mailbox (some refer to this as a "wildcard" mailbox or address). If you set up a catch-all mailbox, messages addressed to your domain but not to one of your specific mailboxes will instead be delivered to your catch-all mailbox.

Email Address Suffixing

Details

What is Suffixing?

You can add a "-suffix" to the local part of your email address, and the messages will get to you. For example, if your email address is <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>, you will also receive messages sent to <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>, <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>, <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>, and so on. This works automatically and without your having to configure the individual suffix values anywhere. Just about any string will work in the "-suffix" position as long as the results are legal as an email address. You should stick to letters, digits, and underscores to ensure compatibility with any future changes to this service feature.

Greylisting

Details

Greylisting is one of the many automated tools we use on the AcceptIO servers to try to minimize how much spam you get while providing high-quality service for legitimate email.

Spam Scoring and Actions

Details

All messages handled by the AcceptIO servers go through a scoring process to rate the likelihood that they are spam. Higher scores mean a higher likelihood of the message being spam. Theoretically, there is no limit to how high or low a message might score. In practice, virtually all messages scoring from 5 to 40 are definitely spam by anyone's standard. Messages scoring below 0 are pretty likely to not be spam. Messages scoring from 0 to 5 should really be looked at by a person instead of a program to make a final decision.
