DigiPortal Announces ChoiceMail Version 2.5 Enterprise Edition Enhances Memory and Combats Latest Email Scams
ORLANDO, FL–April 28th, 2004– DigiPortal Software Inc., a leading developer of information management tools designed to combat information overload and inappropriate Internet content, introduced enhancements to the company’s flagship ChoiceMail Enterprise anti-spam solution that includes database support for scalability and a reduced memory footprint and advanced solutions to detect and eliminate the latest email scams.
Deployed in more than 100 organizations ChoiceMail Enterprise Edition provides both users and IT administrators a variety of active and passive spam detection and prevention features. As an option, users can implement the Identity Verification Feature to allow for the highest accuracy of eliminating unwanted spam
“We needed a solution that would allow us to create a global white list so all of our members could block spam while at the same time accommodate the specific email needs of our individual users. ChoiceMail Enterprise is the only solution that offers this flexibility,” said David Neahusan, Director of Administration with the Independent Insurance Agents of Texas, a non-profit organization of 1,500 independent insurance agency members.
Fully compatible with any corporate email server and requiring no integration, the ChoiceMail system gives businesses the ability to stop the endless flow of spam from reaching their email server, protecting the organization from the stress of unwanted email traffic, the risk of accidental virus or web bug activation and inappropriate content in the workplace. ChoiceMail also provides the email mail server the added protection from being used as a relay mechanism
Users can access the ChoiceMail system via any standard Web browser operating on any operating system, including Windows, Macintosh and Linux as well as wireless devices that incorporate operating systems such as Palm and Pocket PC. This flexibility allows them to manage and view their spam free email while out of the office. ChoiceMail Small Business (CMSB) offers the same capabilities and benefits for organizations that do not already have their own email server.
DigiPortal’s newest installment of ChoiceMail Enterprise Edition, Version 2.5, works with any SQL database system, significantly reducing memory requirements and increasing responsiveness to a large number of email recipients. This newest version of ChoiceMail also includes the ability to find and resolve to IP addresses all servers referenced in the body of a message, allowing messages to be blocked based on these IP address ranges. This capability reduces the instances of fraudulent messages, such as phishing attacks that are designed to fool recipients into divulging personal identification data such as account usernames, passwords and credit card numbers.
“Many of the new enhancements in ChoiceMail Version 2.5 are a result of customer input and feedback,” said Dr. David Jameson, founder and chief technology officer of DigiPortal. “Businesses can rest assured that their employees are protected from the latest email scams and methods incorporated by spammers.”
One of DigiPortal’s goals is to provide users with the ability to remove as much spam email as possible, without the need to send out a challenge. This reduces the amount of email users must review as well as the number of challenges that are sent out. ChoiceMail Version 2.5 offers a junk box window that indicates which messages have been moved to the junk box without the need for sending out challenges. Based on the individual user’s own decisions, Version 2.5 incorporates permission rules used to delete messages that are guaranteed to be email spam, allowing even more control to completely eliminate real spam.
Other major features in ChoiceMail Version 2.5 Enterprise Edition include:
• Safe Message Preview: Users can check the contents of a message without any risk of sending information back to a spammer or triggering a virus.
• Enhanced permission rules and management: Messages matched by a permission rule causes an email message to be sent back to the sender. New functionality allows users to match attachment file names, and attachment file names can be viewed in the message previewer.
• Improved user interface: Drop and drag capability allows users to drag email addresses from compliant email applications into an approved or rejected list of senders.
