VFEmail is a free email system. We don’t use it but found the article interesting.

Since 2001, VFEmail has provided businesses and end-users a quick and convenient way to ensure their own security when it comes to email.

VFEmail scans each complete email, including attachments, for viruses and Spam before it gets to your INBOX. If a Virus is found, it is blocked at the gateway and isn’t even allowed onto our servers.

Here is the notice showing the damage:

!!!ALERT!!!! Update Feb 11 2019
www.vfemail.net and mail.vfemail.net are currently unavailable in their prior form.
We have suffered catastrophic destruction at the hands of a hacker, last seen as aktv@94.155.49.9.
This person has destroyed all data in the US, both primary and backup systems. We are working to recover what data we can.
