  1. What is DoubleCheck?
    DoubleCheck is an email gateway appliance product or service that improves productivity and security by filtering spam, stopping viruses and phishing, filtering content and reporting on email use. Both inbound and outbound email can be processed. DoubleCheck is available in tower, rack or software-only configurations (on 3rd party hardware) for any user level and traffic. DoubleCheck is available from select Authorized Reseller Partners in an ASP/Hosted configuration.
     
  2. How does it filter spam?
    The DoubleCheck Email Manager uses over 800 heuristic rules to read, score and tag spam based on global, domain-level and user-level settings. The rules combine with a layered approach to fighting spam that include real-time black hole lists (RBL), Bayes Classification, Automated White Lists and distributed checksum clearinghouses. DoubleCheck is one of the few companies worldwide to use the URIBL lists for improved spam accuracy. Updates are automatically checked every 30 minutes to two hours based on configuration.
    See
    Product Data Sheet.
     
  3. How does it block viruses?
    The DoubleCheck Email Manager scans all email for viruses and malware, and automatically downloads and installs updates to the anti-virus engine. Updates are automatically checked for every 15 minutes. Alerts are sent to the sender and system administrator as desired and configured.
    See
    Product Data Sheet.
     
  4. How does it save me money?
    DoubleCheck saves money by reducing the time users waste deleting spam and repairing damage from viruses. Administrative time is saved installing, configuring and maintaining desktop software to manage spam. DoubleCheck is typically installed at a lower cost and higher price/performance level than solutions from other  vendors and comes with a configurable real-time Cost Savings Calculator.
     
  5. How many users and email messages can it support?
    DoubleCheck's default configuration supports 1,250 messages per hour (tower appliance) or 2,000 messages per hour (rack appliance). These are average traffic numbers for good email reaching the queue and do not count deleted spam. DoubleCheck is targeted at small and mid-sized businesses, but can easily scale to meet the needs of larger organizations. DoubleCheck Email Managers are currently operating in enterprises of over 1,000 users and in ISPs with over 30,000 users. See
    Product Data Sheet.
     
  6. What reporting does it offer?
    DoubleCheck offers extensive reporting based on spam, viruses, email and system traffic logs. New reports include the Management Report, Quick Reports, Overall Report, configurable charts (pie, bar and line), user reports and log reports by system, domain and user.
    See
    Reporting, Logging and Monitoring Overview.
     
  7. How much does it cost?
    DoubleCheck is offered and priced on an individual customer basis by eFolder and Authorized DoubleCheck Reseller Partners. DoubleCheck is competitively priced compared to both client and appliance or server-based alternatives. Please contact a
    Reseller Partner or submit our contact form for a customized quote combining product installation and annual maintenance.
     
  8. How do I purchase it?
    DoubleCheck is sold through authorized DoubleCheck Reseller Partners. Please contact a

  9. How do I install it?
    DoubleCheck may be installed by an Authorized DoubleCheck Reseller or by the customer's technical contact. In either case, the installer must collect basic configuration information regarding IP addresses, firewall settings, mail server settings and spam settings. Both the online demo or sample screen captures are helpful in understanding the installation. See our
    Best Practices Checklist.
     
  10. How do I get technical support?
    Technical support is available through authorized DoubleCheck Reseller Partners or eFolder. Support is available from eFolder with the purchase of an Annual Software Maintenance Contract (MC). The MC provides spam engine and rule updates, AV and Phishing engine and DAT file updates, Admin Console and report enhancements, remote back-up of key configuration files, and free email and phone support. You may call 877-230-3806 for access to support.
     
  11. How are software updates handled?
    Software updates are done automatically using our AutoUpdate feature. Customers can control the updates, or allow them to take place without administrative or user intervention.
     
  12. What is the hardware warranty?
    DoubleCheck appliance hardware is covered by a three-year Extended Warranty on parts and labor for Years 1-3. In the event of hardware failure, a part or replacement system is shipped to the reseller or customer via 2-day freight for replacement.
