Automated, AppleScript-able Spam and Phishing Tracing and Reporting Solution Dramatically Reduces Spam. Universal Binary designed to work with Mac OS X and every major e-mail client application for OS X.
Hendrickson Software Components (hsc) announced today the release of SidewinderX version 1.0.5, an automated, AppleScript-able spam and phishing tracing and reporting software tool for OS X. The Mac OS X Universal Binary is built on the company's popular Sidewinder Rating Engine, and designed to work with AppleMail, Entourage, Mailsmith, Eudora, and Powermail to trace and report spam and phishing e-mail, and "spamvertized" links embedded in e-mail messages. It will also allow the user to "categorize" spam by content, and send a different abuse complaint, and use a different CC list for abuse complaints from each category. Versions for other email clients will continue to follow very soon, as well as versions for Windows, Windows email clients, Linux, and Linux email clients.
"SidewinderX is the ideal solution for spam-weary customers. Because it automatically traces the source of the spam and the embedded spamvertized and phishing links, and then reports the offenders to their ISPs. SidewinderX helps to eliminate the problem at the source," stated Jeff Hendrickson, creator of the Sidewinder Rating Engine, and SidewinderX. "This first release is designed specifically for Apple Mail and OS X, and now versions are available for other e-mail clients including AppleMail, Entourage, Mailsmith, Eudora, and Powermail."
SidewinderX enables everyone from novice end users to IT professionals working in complex networked environments to effectively reduce spam in their e-mail Inbox and on their network. SidewinderX works by automatically tracing the source of spam and embedded links and reporting offenders to their respective Internet Service Providers. SidewinderX users typically see their spam levels drop dramatically within a few weeks.
