Anyone that has E-mail knows the story. It has been estimated that over 80 percent of all e-mail is unsolicited junk mail, otherwise know as SPAM. These junk messages not only distract you as you now have to sort through numerous e-mails to get to the ones important to you, but in addition, this SPAM takes a toll on the server as it requires bandwidth to transmit them, and disk space to store them. It has become a huge problem for businesses to deal with, but fortunately, we have an arsenal of tools available to us to help with this.
Much like a firewall, these SPAM filters come in either a software solution, or a hardware solution. In either case, the job of filtering SPAM, and forwarding only the important messages, should be the job of a dedicated device that does only that. We can advise you on your options and which can best serve your needs.
