News: Yes! Another Spam Solution
I feel this blog is becoming spamblog. Really. I plough through dozens of press releases every day just to find something good for you guys, and it’s all about spam. Here’s another one (and it’s just the headline): MailFrontier Matador(TM) 3.0 Learns and Adapts to Offer Consistent Maximum Spam Protection Over Time Also Protects Mobile Devices from the Increasing Spam Deluge. Excellent. That at least is interesting, although they’ll be really upset when they realise most screens will only read the first half, which will be MailFrontier Matador(TM) 3.0 Learns and Adapts to Offer Consistent Maximum Spam. Anyway, I digress.
MailFrontier’s new release is “the world’s smartest desktop anti-spam solution”. It even wheels in a Senator, Arizona’s Scott Bundgaard to confirm it, although he does sound a bit like a guy trying out different brans of mouthwash. “I tried other products on the market, but only with MailFrontier Matador was I able to receive my important email and get rid of spam. Now I can avoid unwanted ads for ink cartridges or home mortgages and can focus on emails that are significant to me,” said Bundgaard.
Anyway, on to the product. MailFrontier Matador 3.0, it turns out, “monitors incoming email, analyzing each message to learn more about specific patterns and vocabulary that define good email and bad email for each individual. The software creates an eProfile — a custom rule set — for each individual user, which adapts over time.” Matador also, interestingly, will “filter incoming email before it gets downloaded to a wireless device” which does sound useful.
MailFrontier Matador is a desktop application that sells for $29.95. This includes spam signature file updates, product upgrades, and email support for one year at no additional charge. MailFrontier Matador is available for users of Microsoft(R) Outlook(R) (2000 and 2002) and users of Outlook Express(R) (5.0/5.5/6.0), and Hotmail, MSN, and IMAP, when used through Outlook Express.
