Email Delivery by Customer's Company Mail Server
We cannot guarantee that your company's email servers will accept emails from us (for your email invites to your community). Different companies have different algorithms and policies as to what is considered as SPAM and what is not. Please contact your internal IT staff and ask them about their ANTI-SPAM policies.

Email Communication Encrypted-
IdeaScale email servers are configured with SSL/TLS. TLS allows mail between systems to be encrypted to minimize the chances of snooping. IdeaScale mails (new ideas, logins etc.) are send via our mail servers which is configured to enable TLS as long as the receiving system also supports TLS. Most modern mail systems support TLS out of the box. Please check with your IT department if your email system (inbound mail servers) support TLS.
