Hendrickson Software Components (hsc) announced today the release of Em@ilCRX version 1.5.6, an automated tool to filter e-mail, forward filtered e-mail, and trace and report spam. The cross-platform application is built on the company's popular Sidewinder Rating Engine, and designed to work with any e-mail client software to filter e-mail, forward filtered e-mail, and trace and report spam.
"Em@ilCRX is the ideal solution for spam-weary customers, because it automatically filters e-mail, and traces the source of the spam, and then reports the offenders to their ISPs. Now it will also forward filtered e-mail to a user defined e-mail address." stated Jeff Hendrickson, creator of the Sidewinder Rating Engine, and Em@ilCRX. "Having to delete spam from a Blackberry, or other handheld device can be very annoying. With this new Em@ilCRX feature, users will be able to forward only valid e-mail that has been filtered by the Sidewinder Rating Engine to another e-mail address, including their handheld device."
Em@ilCRX enables everyone from novice end users to IT professionals working in complex networked environments to effectively reduce spam in their e-mail Inbox and on their network. Em@ilCRX works by automatically filtering e-mail, forwarding valid e-mail, and tracing the source of spam and reporting offenders to their respective Internet Service Providers. Em@ilCRX users typically see the spam in their Inbox drop to near zero almost immediately. The Sidewinder Rating Engine does not require "training" as other content based filters do. It filters e-mail based on Reverse DNS facts and rules that are easily selected by the user in their Em@ilCRX configuration.
Why is Em@ilCRX different from other e-mail filtering products?
- Sidewinder Rating Engine is reverse DNS based
