For a person, email spam may be just another day of 21st century where most well known email clients can keep the danger level well under control. But when it comes to server level spam protection, you really have to seat on the edge to keep up with the spammers. With fraudulent, inappropriate and offensive emails being delivered in vast quantities to businesses every day, spam protection is a vital component of your network’s security strategy. Spam wastes network users’ time and network resources, and can also be dangerous (especially since now days crooks deliver financial Trojans through mail- which can bring you down to your knees overnight).
Most email server products provide limited monitoring, security, and anti-spam functions. In those that do, the feature set tends to be weak and seemingly implemented as an afterthought. However, the new GFI MailEssentials from GFI Software not only provides the most comprehensive anti-spam capabilities currently available, but also industrial-strength mail monitoring, the ability to add disclaimers to all outgoing messages, and more. Impressively, GFI provides many of the product’s best features as freeware, making GFI MailEssentials a must-evaluate product for administrators of both large and small networks alike.
GFI MailEssentials managed to bag over 60 awards to its name, and reported over 80,000 satisfied customers; well off course not to mention the lowest prices on the market. GFI MailEssentials is an anti spam filter that captures a very reasonable portion of spam and, since it is server-based, it eliminates the need to install and update anti spam software on each desktop. A majority portion of this category software relies on very common anti-spam capabilities in the form of keyword lists that needed to be manually created. While this method is effective for blocking spam messages that include offers of university diplomas, cheap mortgages, and a variety of free offers, the creation and maintenance of the keyword lists can be cumbersome, especially based on the increasing creativity of spammers in getting their messages through to end users.
Hack previously even GFI MailEssentials used to deploy same methods; but it seems that GFI has recognized the need for a much higher level of spam detection in order for their product to reach maximum effectiveness. Keyword and message header checking are still a central component, including a great default list that includes many of the most commonly used spam keywords. However, the use of blacklists and its patented whitelist is what really sets the new GFI MailEssentials apart from the competition.
GFI has put a great deal of time and effort into making GFI MailEssentials much more robust every update, useful, and intelligent application. Not only does it do a superior job of defeating spam compared to other spam blockers on the market, the additional features like Mail Monitor, disclaimers, exchange spam filter and the reporting capabilities combine to make it an unbeatable value for any network that includes its own mail server.
