FTC EXTENDS PACT WITH MAILSHELL
IN FIGHT AGAINST EMAIL SPAM
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - April 29, 2003 - The
Federal Trade Commission today extended its contract to
use a customized version of Mailshell's anti-spam software
in spam-related investigations. Mailshell is a leading provider
of anti-spam software and creator of the SpamCatcher Engine,
the easiest and most accurate solution to spam.
The relationship between the FTC and Mailshell
was launched in April of 2002 and today's extension of the
agreement marks the successful completion of the initial
term of the contract and the initiation of its second year.
Due to the confidential nature of the FTC's spam-related
criminal investigations, the agreement prohibits Mailshell
from disclosing specific terms or implementation details.
"Mailshell is honored to be part of the
FTC's efforts to fight spam," said Tonny Yu, president
and founder of Mailshell. "We believe that by combining
advancements in technology, regulation, law enforcement
and user behavior we can dramatically reduce the spam problem."
Mailshell is the creator of the SpamCatcher Engine,
the easiest solution to spam. The company's products include
anti-spam software developers' tools and a suite of enterprise
and personal anti-spam products. Mailshell's OEM customers
serve thousands of companies worldwide. Mailshell SpamCatcher
recently earned an "Editor's Choice" award in PC Magazine's
review of spam filters, and has been dubbed "priceless"
by Forbes magazine, "excellent" by the Associated Press
and "easy to use" by CNET. For more information visit http://www.mailshell.com.
