SPAM FILTER

Unsolicited email has become a major problem that can no longer be ignored. Spam rates continue to rise (see table to the right). Too much time is spent sifting through in boxes looking for potential legitimate email and deleting all the unwanted SPAM.

The recent CAN-SPAM Act has done little to deter spam. "The CAN-SPAM Act appears to have had little immediate effect on the amount of unwanted email offers," said Andrew Lochart, Director of Product Marketing for Postini. "Current Internet technology allows spammers to hide their identity, such that spam can only be fought through a combination of technology and laws."

Our laws can do little to regulate SPAM coming from other countries, so the best possible solution is sophisticated filtering technology. We implement the latest technology to filter your email so you don't have to. Enjoy the following benefits with our SPAM filter:

  • Self-Controlled Email Filtering. You control how aggressive your filtering is and who can and can't send you email. Configure specific emails to always be filtered or never filtered. You have control!
  • Web Based Management
  • Review emails that have been filtered out at any time.
