Hendrickson Software Components (hsc) announced today that Sp@mX, the company's popular software for spam and phishing tracing and reporting, accomplished a goal from it's year long anti-spam campaign.

Back in the Fall of 2005, hsc undertook a grass roots campaign to put "one spammer in the slammer."

From Press Release, Fall 2005
- One spammer in the slammer. Using information collected by Sp@mX users, track down the individual(s) that are responsible for the highest volume of spam. Then see that they are prosecuted for violation of United States anti-spam laws.

According to Jeff Hendrickson, author of Sp@mX, "Spam and phishing attacks are probably the most prevalent 'quality of life' crime that affects the largest number of United States citizens. The United States Congress has given law enforcement a wonderful set of laws to deal with these criminals, but no one is really using them to fight back against these online predators. Sp@mX users have collaborated on this approach to deal with this problem through their use of Sp@mX and the hsc message board. Our goal is to put one of these online predators in jail by the end of 2006, and financially ruin a spammer friendly ISP. The more people that get involved with this effort, the more likely it will succeed. I encourage everyone that has been negatively affected by this blight to join us."

Jeff Hendrickson was notified by one of his Sp@mX users that the Phoenix, AZ field office of the FBI was acting on an e-mail abuse complaint submitted by the user using Sp@mX. The sender had been targeted for criminal prosecution by the FBI for violation of the Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act 2003 (CAN-SPAM Act 2003) based on the user's Sp@mX spam report which was CC'ed by Sp@mX to the Federal Trade Commission.

Sp@mX enables everyone from end users to IT professionals working in complex networked environments to effectively reduce spam in their e-mail Inbox and on their network. Sp@mX works by automatically tracing the source of spam and reporting offenders to their respective Internet Service Providers. Sp@mX users typically see their spam levels drop dramatically within four weeks.

"My inbox was overrun with spam. At one point I think I received about 250 spam e-mails in a 12-hour period," offers Thomas Wright, a broker with Believer's Realty in Phoenix. "Since I installed and started using Sp@mX, I'm seeing real results. Last night at approximately 9:30 p.m., I had received less than ten spam e-mails and as of 7:15 this morning I have received ZERO...nada...none!"

Sp@mX is available for Windows, Macintosh and Linux. This makes Sp@mX ideal for people who use one environment at work and another at home, or for those who work in mixed computing environments, or for those who like to use software that is available for multiple platforms should their needs and interests change in the future.

Pricing and Availability

Sp@mX is available in both client and server editions. The client edition is priced at $9.95 US. The server edition is priced at $399.95 US. The product can be purchased directly from hsc on their website. Quantity discounts are available; please contact the company for details.
