Spam Filtering: TeamOrb uses SpamAssassin filtering software to identify and mark suspected unsolicited bulk e-mail (spam). This system marks incoming e-mail as possible spam and then forwards the suspect e-mail to you as an attachment to a message with "~~SPAM~~" in the subject line.   The original message can then be viewed by you before further action is taken. For more information on how to set up rules for handling items marked as spam, click here. TO BE REMOVED FROM THIS SERVICE or if you have questions, contact

Virus Detection: All e-mail passing through our server is scanned for viruses in real time using RAV scanning technology. Our servers automatically check for new virus pattern data files two times per day, seven days a week, so our virus definitions are always up-to date.  In addition, we actively block unsolicited, bulk commercial e-mail (spam) using blacklist databases at and  Together with our spam filter, these blacklists allow us to detect and block hundreds of spam messages every day, protecting you from the inconvenience of sorting through the "junk." If you have questions about these services, or are concerned that your legitimate messages are being blocked, contact

Line Speed: The Internet is a network of "highways" much like the highways upon which we drive our automobiles. Just as with a road network, there are many routes to any given destination on the Internet. Some routes are better than others. Also, there are numerous cables, routers, switches, computers, communication lines, and other network devices between your computer and any site to which you might connect. All of these network components have varying capabilities and performance capacities. For example, the capacity of a given web site to handle a request for service coming from your browser may be less than the capacity of your computer to connect to the Internet through the TeamOrb network. The speed of any Internet connection can be no greater than the speed of the slowest link. Unlike when you are driving a car, where you can pick a good route over a bad one, the average Internet user usually has little control over the path of an Internet connection. Because of differences in capacity, the quality of equipment, and the type and quality of transportation lines, your Internet connection might be slower than expected, particularly during times of peak Internet usage. No Internet connection ever performs at 100% of its theoretical speed limit. If you are a wireless service customer of ours and you think your connection to the Internet is slower than it should be, you can test your line speed to the TeamOrb server by clicking here. If the results of this test are slower than expected, please contact
