I'm curious about this service called "Safe Send", which is part of "mailprotector".  Has anyone used it or heard anything about it?  I'm looking to protect my outbound emails and prevent my account from becoming one of those that sends spam to my contacts.  Is this a good service, or is there something better?  Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

I have not used or heard much about it. Their web site seems to explain how it all works.

They don't provide a lot of technical details on their site, but in the FAQ they mention mail servers and MX records.
So I'm guessing that this is a service for companies that run their own mail server.

I assume you don't run your own mailserver?
Do you use your ISP or a service like Gmail, Live mail, ... for your e-mail?
