Improved Anti-spam service accurately blocks 99% of spam

February 02, 2004

Ann Arbor, MI - February 02, 2004 - Greenview Data, Inc., a computer software and services company, has released the fourth generation of its anti-spam service This service uses unique databases of known spam and spammers, updated every 10 minutes, to recognize spam with nearly absolute certainty. For a typical customer, it blocks 99% of spam and passes 99.99% of legitimate email.

The SpamStopsHere service works with entire domains, such as business domains and personal domains. Setup is trivial, and using it requires no effort. There is no hardware or software to install or maintain, no tuning and no training; it requires only a simple change to the domain's configuration. It is a true "Sign up and forget service". Optionally, users can customize it with an easy-to-use, flexible web interface.

Unlike other anti-spam methods, SpamStopsHere does not use error-prone filtering based on simple phrases or “trigger” words. It is the first anti-spam service that is even suitable for medical and legal organizations since it allows email with any content. It is ideal for any business.

SpamStopsHere primarily blocks spam by recognizing the “Click me” links (URLs) and “Call me” phone numbers found in spam messages. This URL/Phone # database is updated every 10 minutes and receives about 1000 new entries every day. This first level of filtering is augmented by several additional levels of filtering to block all types of spam. Each customer can select any combination of filtering techniques and can set up personal Blacklists and Whitelists. Anti-virus scanning is optional. Pricing starts at only $19 per month for a domain with 10 mailboxes.

According to Ted Green, president, "Although the common opinion is that spammers are winning control over email, we have developed the technology to defeat spam. According to every one of our customers, we have almost completely solved their spam problem".
