“Stop spam and viruses before they reach the Inbox. ”


written by marisp on 16/12/2004

Stop spam and viruses before they reach the Inbox.

G-Lock SpamCombat is probably the most popular and effective spam fighting software from an indie software developer. After all, Alexa ranks www.glocksoft.com among the top 100000 websites on the Internet and Google search for G-Lock SpamCombat produces over 16000 results, which is three times as much as some of the "commercially grown" anti-spam solutions.

The reason for G-Lock SpamCombat popularity is that it kills 99.5% of spam and viruses before they even get to the Inbox. In fact, the program does not even download unwanted correspondence by deleting it on the server directly. To achieve this astonishing efficiency and accuracy, G-Lock SpamCombat uses all known anti-spam measures - Whitelist, Blacklist, HTML Validator, DNSBL filter, and the Bayesian filter.

While white and black lists are very common, unfortunately these are passive solutions that can't protect e-mail recipients from future spam and virus attacks if initiated from different e-mail addresses. HTML Validator and DNSBL filters can. This first tool allows previewing questionable HTML messages with no pictures downloaded and no hidden scripts or codes executed. DNSBL filter compares senders' IP addresses against lists of known spam databases. This technique is especially effective when spam senders try using valid return e-mail addresses from respectable businesses.

Bayesian filter is a name for a complex mathematical message content analyzing algorithm that is based on the self-learning principle. This algorithm analyzes messages that are marked as "good" and "bad". After that the program can analyze an unknown message and mark it as spam (or not) with 99.5% accuracy. Unlike other anti-spam solutions, G-Lock SpamCombat never confuses opt-in HTML newsletter messages with HTML spam.

Another important benefit of using G-Lock SpamCombat is that it is e-mail client independent. And since the program supports POP3 and IMAP, it can be configured to work with popular web-based e-mail services, like Hotmail and Yahoo. AOL users can use it as well. Plus, G-Lock SpamCombat uses very unusual licensing arrangements. The price of registering the program is 35 US Dollars. The trial version is available as well. While the trial version works with one e-mail account only, it never expires and has no other functional limitations. Which means that users who don't have multiple e-mail accounts may use this spectacular spam fighting solution absolutely free.
