The Austrian online agency chiliSCHARF uses the e-mail filtering of EuropeanMX. It provides the technical infrastructure for its customers and relies on reliable filtering of incoming mails.

Why does chiliSCHARF rely on EuropeanMX?
At chiliSCHARF, EuropeanMX was primarily used to efficiently filter out spam in the future. Companies such as the chiliSCHARF agency are overburdened by advertising emails, which keep the business running considerably. His customers also want to protect chiliSCHARF from spam. For this purpose, the company previously used the GFI MailEssentials Exchange Server 2010. Finally, chiliSCHARF switched to Exchange 2016 for technical reasons and re-evaluated the spam filter in this context. The agency came across EuropeanMX. The selection criteria included:
- simple setup
- acceptable costs
- good filter quality
In addition, chiliSCHARF hoped for significant improvements from EuropeanMX. The status quo should be kept without reinstalling software on the server, the cost should not increase significantly without sacrificing quality. GFI MailEssentials offered a comparable solution with a good spam filter, but there was one major drawback: Not all updates ran smoothly on the server.
