Roaring Penguin Software, Inc., makers of the acclaimed CanIt line of anti-spam solutions, confirmed today that its President and CTO, David Skoll, will contribute a series of articles on the nuts and bolts of the email system to the IT Business Management Update, a monthly online newsletter distributed to more than 40,000 IT services professionals around the world, published by Autotask Corporation.
"Managed Service Providers (MSPs) are our core channel," said Skoll. "We have found that as a group they would benefit from a deeper knowledge of the intricacies of today’s modern email applications. Our goal with the Email 101 articles is to help enhance their level of in-depth technical knowledge in this area, and Autotask’s IT Business Management Update is a perfect vehicle for reaching them."
Skoll’s article, How to Read Received Headers: Everything You Need to Know to Trace an Email Message, the first in an ongoing series, is designed to allow system administrators to trace the path of an email from its originator to its destination. The full article will be available online in late November 2010 in the IT Business Manager Update Newletter.
Roaring Penguin has focused on integrating CanIt with the remote monitoring and management (RMM) tools that MSPs use on a daily basis. In addition to being integrated with Autotask IT business management software, CanIt is also integrated with Kaseya, Level Platforms, N-able, itControl Suite and other popular RMM applications.
CanIt‑PRO is available as an on-premises "soft appliance" for the client's site. CanIt‑Domain‑PRO is a centralized spam software filter used to protect multiple clients from spam at the MSP's network operations center or NOC. Hosted CanIt is a completely outsourced anti-spam service hosted by Roaring Penguin.
