ChoiceMail Spam-Blocking Software Earns Top Rating from CNET’s Download.com
ORLANDO, FL-July 20th, 2004-DigiPortal Software Inc. announced today that its free spam-blocking software, ChoiceMail Free, has earned CNET’s Download.com top rating. ChoiceMail Free is the only anti-spam tool to receive a 5 out of 5 rating from CNET’s editors.
The editors cited ChoiceMail Free’s ability to effectively block spam from the user’s e-mail account while offering extra features enabling users to easily tailor the solution to their preferences. “We particularly like being able to pick and choose the rules we want to apply because it lets us set a precise level of protection,” the editors said.
ChoiceMail Free is a free version of DigiPortal’s highly acclaimed ChoiceMail One anti-spam software solution. Like ChoiceMail One, the free version utilizes a permission-based strategy enabling only approved email to enter the user’s inbox, combined with an array of other spam-blocking techniques that eliminate 100% of unwanted email while ensuring that no legitimate mail is lost. Competing solutions lock users into a full challenge/response system, which is unwieldy, or one based on rules or Bayesian Theory filters, which can be circumvented by spammers.
ChoiceMail Free automatically approves messages from senders on the user’s “whitelist” and has built-in mechanisms to block obvious spam. Senders receive an automatic message asking them to verify their identity, allowing users to decide which correspondents they trust and add them to their whitelists to ensure that future emails from those senders will be accepted. ChoiceMail Free also includes built-in mechanisms to effectively deal with mailing lists and newsletters. These and other techniques eliminate the shortcomings of other challenge/response systems.ChoiceMail Free is designed to protect a single POP3 email account from spam. ChoiceMail One, a $39.95 program with a free 14-day trial version, utilizes identical methods to protect multiple POP3 email accounts and Web-based email such as AOL, MSN, Hotmail and Yahoo. Both can be used with any email program and are available at www.digiportal.com.
For enterprises, DigiPortal also offers a ChoiceMail Enterprise Edition that requires no integration with corporate email servers and prevents spam from ever reaching the enterprise email server.
