DigiPortal Equips Consumers to Win Battle Against Email Spam
“ChoiceMail Free” Anti Spam Software Reduces Junk Mail to Zero
ORLANDO, FL —April 27th, 2004— The battle against email spam is over—and the winner is the consumer.
DigiPortal Software Inc. today introduced a free version of the company’s flagship anti-spam solution, ChoiceMail One, a comprehensive permission-based spam-blocking product that has received critical acclaim for its ability to reduce junk email to zero.
Computer users everywhere have become outraged over the unwanted, unsolicited, offensive and fraudulent email congesting their email inboxes.
“There is an enormous amount of arm-waving about spam,” said Dan Wallace, VP of Marketing. “Legislation and lawsuits are not going to make spam go away. The fact is that ChoiceMail Free works. Period. There is simply no reason for anyone to have a spam problem anymore.”
“With ChoiceMail Free, if something gets into your inbox, you can be 100% certain you want it, You also can be 100% certain you haven’t missed anything you want,” said Dr. David Jameson, founder and chief technology officer of DigiPortal. “We are giving consumers the power to protect themselves from spam so they can have faith in their email accounts again.”
ChoiceMail Free automatically creates a “whitelist” of known, approved senders. It also allows users to create permission rules or activate built-in rules to accept or block any email they choose. Unknown senders whose mail is neither accepted nor blocked by the lists and rules receive a challenge message asking them to identify themselves and the purpose of their email. The challenge message requires a human response and cannot be automated. The response process is also protected against social engineering attacks.
Competing solutions either lock users into a full challenge/response system or are based solely on rules or Bayesian Theory filters, which spammers have already learned to defeat. Unlike other challenge/response systems, ChoiceMail Free also has built-in mechanisms to deal effectively with mailing lists and newsletters.
ChoiceMail Free is a full-featured solution designed to protect a single POP3 email account from spam. Users wishing to protect multiple POP3 email accounts, accounts, and Web-based email, such as AOL, MSN, Hotmail and Yahoo accounts, can purchase the paid version ChoiceMail One for $39.95.
DigiPortal also offers ChoiceMail Enterprise, which uses the same permission-based anti-spam methods to protect corporate and organizational email systems. It gives users and IT administrators the ability to tailor ChoiceMail’s capabilities to meet their needs. Because ChoiceMail Enterprise requires no integration with corporate email servers, it works in any email environment and prevents spam from ever reaching the enterprise email server.
