0Spam.com Press Releases
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Extreme Spam Filtering – When Filters and Blocklists Are Not Enough.
Protect Multiple POP, Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail, or IMAP E-mail Accounts from Spammers with 0Spam.com. Compatible with all E-mail clients and operating systems.
February, 2005 – 0Spam.com, a free anti-spam service, announces its new wave of features, tools, downloads, translations, and other major service improvements. By providing a smart and efficient anti-spam solution simple enough for home users and powerful enough for business users, 0Spam.com has grown its user base in the past 18 months to include thousands of satisfied users who are spared from millions of spams each month.
0Spam.com uses a CAPTCHA as a test to determine spam messages apart from legitimate E-mail. All mail is assumed spam unless determined otherwise by a series of user-defined whitelists, various global whitelist filters, and IP address checks. Messages that pass any of the whitelists are allowed to remain in the user’s inbox. Unauthorized messages require the sender to verify their E-mail address only once to show that their message is legitimate. Many users claim a 100% spam blocking accuracy rate.
Major features added since August 2003 include support for Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail, and IMAP accounts; support for blind users; a whitelist specially designed for mailing lists and newsletters; homepage translations into Dutch, Spanish, and French; a virtual mail server which removes spam seconds before the user checks their E-mail; the ability for users to check their E-mail and view their Junk Mail folder at the same time, and more than twenty verification translations are now available including Chinese, Japanese, Russian, and Estonian.
0Spam.com Express, a downloadable add-on for Windows, makes it easy for new users to setup their account by automatically importing their E-mail account settings and address book into the 0Spam.com interface. Once installed, 0Spam.com Express sleeps in the Task Bar and intercepts spam between the user’s mail server and inbox, before the E-mail client has a chance to download it.
Users may now take advantage of a new feature called Smart Language Detection which tells the 0Spam.com software to detect which language an E-mail was written in and sends back a verification message in the appropriate language. This is a key feature of the service which 0Spam.com has worked hard to make sure works properly. Planned upcoming features include a multi-dimensional DNS blocklist spam detection method and a smart mailing list detection algorithm.
In December 2003 0Spam.com has been accredited by the blind community to be the first anti-spam service that allows blind users to “see” the CAPTCHA number, used by many online services as a way of separating humans from computers or spammers. Here is how it works: the blind user is sent a verification message instructing them to visit the URL containing the image with distorted numbers. On that page there is an invisible hyperlink that only blind people can read with a screen reading program. The user clicks the link, enters their E-mail address, and the verification code is sent to them, which they can then enter into the first page containing the distorted image. Thanks to Grant Hardy of ACB Radio, for contributing his 28 minute review of 0Spam.com and how blind users can see the distorted verification code and protect their E-mail accounts from spam.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Defend Your E-mail Account from Spammers With 0Spam.com; Many Users Claim 100% Accuracy
October, 2003 – 0Spam.com, a free anti-spam service dedicated to eliminating spam from your inbox is announcing the availability of it’s service at www.0spam.com after initial tests have been successfully completed. With the increasing number of spam messages received in recent months, it is not uncommon for someone’s E-mail account to be hit with 500 or more spams each day, which makes 0Spam.com all the more useful.
Contrary to other anti-spam services, 0Spam.com assumes all mail to be spam unless determined otherwise by a series of user-defined and automatically generated whitelists. If a message passes any one of the whitelist rules, it is allowed to remain in the user’s inbox. Unauthorized messages require the sender to verify their E-mail address only once to show that their message was not spam. Many of our beta testers have reported to us that our service was nearly 100% accurate in spam detection.
One major advantage of our server-based system is that since no software is required to download or install, 0Spam.com is compatible with any operating system that supports a web interface, any E-mail client, and any POP based E-mail account (POP means Post Office Protocol, the most common method of accessing E-mail). Not only does the user keep their same E-mail address, but they will also continue to check their E-mail the same way they always do using the E-mail client of their choice. Hence, they may keep all the same E-mail filters and rules in their E-mail client if they wish.
One typical problem of E-mail verification systems is that they often block newsletters, confirmation E-mails, and other automated E-mails where there is no human sender to verify that the message is not spam. Our solution to this problem is the “keyword whitelist” feature which allows the user to whitelist words or phrases in a message, such as their last name, address, or the names of newsletters that they belong to, which are not found in spam mails. In case one of these non-spam mails are deleted and marked as spam, the user can always log in to their account and read or undelete the message.
Once an E-mail account is registered and configured with 0Spam.com, the entire system is fully automatic, no more work is required on the user’s part. An easy-to-understand tutorial with screen shots is provided to help users setup their E-mail accounts with our service.
0Spam.com intends to keep the service free and eventually charge a small fee of 10 € ($11 USD) per year only to users who want additional storage space or extra features for their account. For more information regarding 0Spam.com, please visit our website at http://www.0spam.com/.
