SpamShield - How to activate

SpamShield is the advanced spam filter for your email service. You can use this filter with your local or remote mail servers. To activate your filter you must first order it via your Funio Hub or via and then you need to modify your MX records.

When you order your SpamShield, our service will detect the mail servers where it will redirect your emails after analyzing and filtering them by checking the MX records of your domain. If you already use an anti-spam filter and it is present on your MX records, you must first modify your MX records for your mail servers so that the filter is properly configured during installation.

It is essential to know where you manage the DNS zone of your domain name since you need to modify your MX records to complete the installation.

If you have a hosting plan with Funio, you need to make sure the mail routing on the server is set to Local Mail Exchanger.

In this article, we have as an example a client who has hosting with Funio and who manages the DNS zone on the same server as his hosting.
