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 is very successful at this and on a properly configured system it blocks more than 99% of spam, with a false-positive rate of less than 0.01%.
Your organization may also be using CanIt to scan outbound mail to ensure that you are not propagating spam against your will or sending out certain confidential information. You may also have long-term email archiving available to you through CanIt to ensure that your emails will remain intact and accessible even if your local mail systems fail.
