Setting Up Your Blue Net Hosted SPAM Filtering
MailProtector is our comprehensive hosted anti-spam and email security service. It ensures the optimal filtering of unwanted or harmful messages, while also providing customers with assurance that they can continue to access and respond to email even when their own email infrastructure is offline. The solution is easily customized and extremely easy to maintain.
Manage your email Filter at:
Username: your email address
Password: same as you use to log into your PC.
The default (Quarantine) screen will show any messages that have been caught in the spam filter. From here you may release, allow (whitelist), export, or delete the message(s) by clicking in the checkbox next to the message and then clicking on one of the buttons above.
On the right side of the screen, there will be links for additional settings.
The “Main” screen shows a graph of your mail traffic for the last 30 days.
The “Settings” screen gives you additional options.
Spam Tolerance defaults to “Normal” 200/1000 setting. The higher the setting the harder it is for Spam to get through, but also the more likely for a false-positive to block desirable messages. 99% of our users leave the tolerance to “Normal”
Spam Tolerance: Leave Anti-Spam Aggressiveness at Normal
The “Allow/Block” screen allows you to create, allow, or block rules for individual email addresses or domains.

Setting Up MS Outlook With A Blue Net Email Account
Launch Microsoft Outlook from the start menu or desktop icon. If this is the first time launching Outlook, the wizard will start automatically.
If Outlook has already been configured for another email account, from within Outlook select File.
Enter your Name, email address, and password.
Outlook will query your account information. If your DNS has been configured correctly Outlook will auto-discover the email server settings.
Check “Don’t ask me about this website again.”
Upon successful completion of the Add New Account wizard, click.
If autodiscover did NOT automatically configure your e-mail server settings it is most likely because your DNS was not properly configured. You can MANUALLY configure your email account using the following information:
Check the “Manually configure server settings.”
Select “Microsoft Exchange or compatible service”.
User Name: email@example.com
Click More Settings.
Click the “Connection” tab.
Check the “Connect to Microsoft Exchange using HTTP” box.
Click Exchange Proxy Settings.
Use this URL to connect to my proxy server for Exchange: webmail.tdonline.com.
Check Connect using SSL only.
Check “Only connect to proxy servers that have this principal name in their certificate” msstd:webmail.tdonline.com.
Check both boxes: On fast networks, connect using HTTP first, then connect using TCP/IP.
On slow networks, connect using HTTP first, then connect using TCP/IP.
Change Proxy authentication settings to “Basic Authentication.”
Click again to close the “More Settings…” Page. You will be prompted.
