               What does ECC do?
When email is sent to your domain, before it reaches your Email Service it is
passed via the ECC engine. It is at this stage the email is scanned.
It is at this stage before it even reaches your Inbox that the mail is scanned for:

    Viruses (ECC uses 3 different virus engines. Sophos is one of these
    Spam (connection management and integration of multiple best of
    breed filters)
    Pornographic Images (Image filters that can recognise skin tones and
    block based on your threshold)
    Dark Mail (message traffic is submitted by an attacker to numerous e-
    mail addresses in the hope of finding a valid target)
    VS (Verify Sender)
