Mail Filter Rolled Out to Help Stop Spam
Atlantech Online Offers Filter to Stop Spam
Business and Government-serving ISP empowers users to filter unwanted email out of their inbox
Silver Spring, MD - May 12, 2003 - Atlantech Online, a super-regional Internet Service Provider located in suburban Maryland, is pleased to announce a spam-filtering solution that helps its customers keep unsolicited commercial email (UCE or "spam") out of their inboxes. The service is included as a standard feature for all customers using Atlantech Online's email servers.
"Spammers are relentless in their efforts," said Ed Fineran, President of Atlantech Online. "Atlantech Online's Spam Identification Service empowers its customers to clean spam out of their inbox and to place the unwanted email into the trash can, where it belongs."
SPAM is bulk email that arrives in an email box that a user does not want and did not ask for. Atlantech Online's Spam Identification Service will allow customers to prevent unsolicited emails from reaching their inbox. This service will scan each message as it is delivered to an inbox, and process it to see if it appears to be SPAM. Based on its processing rules, the service will then add an additional header field to the email message stating the probability that the message is SPAM. The content of the message is not touched, and therefore is transparent to the user. The customer will simply set up rules, either on the email server or in their email client (such as Outlook or Netscape) to look at the header added by the Spam Identification Service and process the message based on that.
