Arlington, VA, United States, 2005/03/31 - Hendrickson Software Components (hsc) announced today that Sp@mX, the company's popular software for spam source tracing and reporting, has the added capability to filter email.
Starting with version 3.3, Sp@mX users were collecting data about the spam that they were receiving in a central database on the hsc server. Sp@mX version 4.0 uses this data to filter email that is in the users email server inbox, so that they can process it using Sp@mX without having to download it to their desktop email inbox.
With this offering, Sp@mX now provides a comprehensive anti-spam solution. It will filter a user's email so they don't have to see the spam, and report the source of the spam along with any "spamvertized" URLs so that their spam level is dramatically reduced. Reporting the spamvertized URLs also gives Sp@mX a powerful anti-phishing capability.
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 to near zero 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 $19.95 US. The server edition is priced at $399.95 US. The product can be purchased directly from hsc. Quantity discounts are available; please contact the company for details.
