Inbound Security Filtering.
We filter all inbound email for malicious content, attachments or senders.

Safe Senders / Whitelisting.
Sometimes a legitimate sender is blocked from sending your an email or lands up in your junk email.
If you are using a PC, you can whitelist senders to prevent them from being sent to Junk Mail: Stop Message From Going to Junk Email
If that does not work or you are using a mac, simply forward the email in question to [service @ celeratec.com] and we will whitelist them for you.
Some attachments are banned via email because they are harmful.
This includes any attachment with executable content in it such as a Macro-enabled Word or Excel document.
If you receive one of these attachments it will be stripped from the email, to retrieve it, send a request to [service @ celeratec.com] to have it released.
We scan all email links for malicious content when you click on the link in an email.

Email Authentication and Signing.
We sign all of your outbound email with DKIM and we publish an SPF record for your company.
This let's recipient email systems validate your email validity and leads to greater trust of your email by the recipient systems increasing your deliverability.
This does mean that any email not sent via our servers may be blocked or classified as spam.
If you are using a web server or other application that uses your company domain name, we need to add that system to our list and configure it correctly.
Send that request to [service @ celeratec.com] for assistance.
We also validate all inbound email with the same mechanisms.
If a sender is blocked, it may be due to a configuration error on the senders end and we will provide you with assistance with this when it occurs.
We often work with the sender's email administrator to get these errors corrected.
