SOLUTION TO ANTI-SPAM LAWS ANNOUNCED

(PRWEB) October 23, 2003

EDMONTON, Canada (PRWEB) October 22, 2003 – ToolButton Inc. today released version 1.5 of ToolButton that incorporates a message delivery system allowing marketers to communicate with users in a manner similar to that of email.

California has recently signed into law an Anti-Spam bill that severely limits the ability for marketers to use email to communicate with end users – regardless of the permissions that may exist. California’s SB 186 goes into effect January 1, 2004 and will effectively curtail a large portion of commercial email advertisements sent to or from the state. The intent of the law is to prevent spam but the unintended result is harmful to reputable webmasters, list managers and brokers.

ToolButton resolves the legislative conundrum by providing a delivery channel that is like email – but not email. Text, HTML and rich media formatted messages can be sent to users who have installed the ToolButton toolbar. However, because the message is not transmitted by SMTP email, the California law does not apply.

The advantage to users is control. Users cannot be sent unsolicited messages and can remove the ability of the sender to communicate if the messages are not appropriate.

ToolButton is an Internet Explorer browser enhancement that includes a search bar for 50+ search engines. It provides users with a delivery channel to obtain content from their favorite websites by adding “ToolButtons”. These are pipelines to dynamic and static content from websites of the user’s choice. A ToolButton can include news content, dynamic feeds, blogs, RSS content and menus of important URLs – all available at the click of a button.

“The impending California legislation clearly has good intentions but is directed at the wrong parties. The new law will not stop off shore spammers but will scare legitimate marketers from dealing with users who have clearly indicated they want newsletters, bulletins and other commercial messages”, said Dale Janssen, Chief Idea Creator and President of ToolButton Inc. “The advantage of messaging with ToolButton is that both users and marketers win”.

ToolButton is free for users.

Availability

Users and Web Masters wishing to install the ToolButton software may freely download the software at http://www.toolbutton.com. The software includes the ToolButton toolbar and a series of default ToolButtons to demonstrate the flexibility of the software. Users can install ToolButton on computers at home and the office and maintain their same configuration at both locations.

This is helpful for administrators who create custom rules or want to transfer their rules to others.”

E-mail administrators will also benefit from enhanced spam detection features, will be able to configure CanIt to scan for and reject viruses and Windows executable files even if the database server goes down, and can choose to set permissions on individual mail stream settings.

Demand for Netriplex’s 100% Anti-Spam Solution Escalates Data Center Expansions

Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 19, 2004

-Netriplex (http://www.netriplex.com) announced today that, due to overwhelming demand for its 100% guaranteed anti-spam solution, it has escalated the expansion of its Boston data center and anticipates completion of its Los Angeles data center installation within the next several days.

“We weren’t surprised to learn that many companies were interested in our guaranteed 100% Spam elimination solution.” said Jonathan Hoppe, Chief Technology Officer for Netriplex. “What did surprise us is the fact that every single company that contacted us has an existing competitive solution that isn’t performing well.”

Because Netriplex EMS is an off-site solution, implementation is completely painless and virtually instantaneous with no hardware or software to install or maintain. Network administrators simply make an MX entry change to point their inbound mail to the Netriplex global network. This type of solution keeps Spam and viruses far away from the corporate network, thus increasing security and drastically reducing bandwidth previously consumed by Spam. The off-site solution also provides redundancy for disaster recovery — something difficult and costly to replicate at the corporate level.

The Netriplex network is comprised of multiple geographically dispersed world-class data centers utilizing up to eight Tier 1 internet backbone providers per location. This global design ensures 100% availability and also provides an unparalleled level of redundancy for Netriplex customers guaranteeing that their mail is always delivered.

Because the Email Management Solution is 100% effective, companies will notice the complete elimination of Spam and viruses within a matter of days, quickly bringing a significant return on investment.

Managed Internet Service Provider Integrates CanIt-PRO Anti-Spam Solution Into Automated Domain Hosting Services

Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) February 10, 2004

CariNet, a provider of turn-key managed server and bandwidth solutions for businesses and Internet service providers (ISPs), has launched a new anti-spam service to its customers based on Roaring Penguin Software’s CanIt-PRO anti-spam solution. CanIt-PRO, a server-side product, is integrated into CariNet’s automated domain hosting system, providing domain managers with fast and simple opt-in/opt-out mail filtering choices.

Steve Wallace, president of CariNet, said, “As a provider of wholesale ISP services, we see just about every aspect of the junk e-mail problem. Within the last 18 months, the drastic increase in the amount of unsolicited commercial e-mail has effectively disabled many customer mail servers. Our customers were begging for a solution to this problem. Roaring Penguin Software’s CanIt-PRO product provided us with the most easily implemented, scalable and cost-effective solution. With CanIt-PRO, CariNet will be able to further increase the level of service we offer resellers. It will help us to improve customer retention and attract new customers.”

Well over 90% of CariNet’s incoming e-mail is spam – more than a million messages each day. After researching various options – including other filtering applications and developing its own solution, CariNet chose CanIt-PRO because “CanIt had all the tools we needed to build the automated systems that our environment requires,” Wallace adds. CariNet domain managers now have the choice to opt in to e-mail filtering with the click of a button.

CariNet was impressed by CanIt-PRO’s flexibility, scalability, and its open-source code base. The initial implementation of two CanIt servers will handle up to 5 million messages per day. The company expects a rapid adoption rate of the new service, and plans to scale its clustered CanIt network to ten servers in total. Wallace says, “Today, the market exists for a convenient anti-spam solution, and as a managed service provider we’re in an ideal position to provide it.”

Based on the acclaimed MIMEDefang e-mail inspection and manipulation software, also developed and maintained by Roaring Penguin, CanIt offers the industry’s most complete and flexible anti-spam and anti-virus solution.
