XWALLFilter is a no-brainer if you own XWall. The combined solution of XWall and XWALLFilter is the best value for a spam-filtering solution and rivals the best for filtering performance. XWALLFilter support is also top-notch, incomparable to the support most companies provide. -- JJ Brantingham, IT Director Sebesta Blomberg

What are the system requirements for XWall?
Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Windows 2003 R2, Small Business Server 2000, Small Business Server 2003, Small Business Server 2003 R2, Small Business Server 2008, Essential Business Server 2008. While XWall will install and run fine on Windows XP, Microsoft has built-in limits on the number of concurrent TCP/IP connection attempts per-second. Therefore we don't suggest running XWall under Windows XP.
Where does XWall store it's whitelist and can I manually edit it?
XWall Stores the whitelist in two files: AdrOWL-B.dat which is the BINARY database file and AdrOWL-A.dat which is a ASCII file that XWall uses to rebuild AdrOWL-B.dat.
You can edit AdrOWL-A.dat with an ASCII editor like Notepad and remove or add e-mail address.
However, you need to stop XWall while you are doing this and when XWall starts up, it will re-build a new AdrOWL-B.dat from AdrOWL-A.dat.
Depending on the size of your AdrOWL-A.dat, this re-build may take some time.
