thanks again

i will look into your recent link in a minute, i found one of the link  http://smtpfilter.sourceforge.net/

it says Fluffy is not for everyone

--Fluffy works really well provided that you have a permanent internet connection, are running your own SMTP mail server, and you domain's MX record points at your server.

--If you use POP3 to collect email from your ISP's mail server, or if your email is forwarded to you by a domain hosting service, Fluffy is not the answer for you, unfortunately.

i have another to ask myself .... how would i know what is our current setup?

perhaps there is a way to check this?

please advise
thanks
