What is CanIt?

CanIt is a powerful Anti-Spam and E-mail Filtering software product that is produced and supported by Roaring Penguin Software.

The primary function of CanIt is to scan incoming e-mail for spam and other malicious content, aiming to keep it from reaching you - the user. CanIt tends to be very successful at this given it's base configuration, but is also highly configurable to meet the specific needs of any given user.

In addition to this, you may also use CanIt to:

  • scan outbound mail to ensure that you are not propagating spam.
  • encrypt or block messages that are deemed to contain confidential information.
  • maintain an archive of your email.
  • provide business continuity by allowing the continuous sending/receiving of email through the WebUI.
  • alter or redirect mail to or from your mailbox.
