Mailshell to Provide Anti-Spam Solution for the Oracle Collaboration Suite

SANTA CLARA, CA - February 25, 2003 - Mailshell, creator of the SpamCatcher suite of anti-spam products, today announced it will offer enhanced anti-spam capabilities for the Oracle(R) Collaboration Suite. The company's SpamCatcher Gateway Software is the first anti-spam solution tested and available for deployment with Oracle Collaboration Suite.

Mailshell's SpamCatcher suite is the easiest and most accurate solution to spam. It integrates seamlessly into Oracle Collaboration Suite, the first product that leverages a relational database to offer a secure and reliable way to simplify communications and consolidate information with a suite of applications including file management, email, voicemail, calendaring and search capabilities.

"Inbox management and content security are vital to enterprise scale email systems," said Steve Levine, vice president, product marketing, Oracle Collaboration Suite. "Oracle Collaboration Suite provides unprecedented security features that can be extended to include spam blocking through our partnership with Mailshell."

"Anti-spam solutions are being deployed in virtually all enterprise email systems," said Tonny Yu, CEO of Mailshell. "The combination of Mailshell's SpamCatcher software and Oracle's Collaboration Suite will be compelling for customers looking to increase employee productivity and ensure security."

Mailshell's SpamCatcher Gateway Software is an SMTP proxy that scans each message and inserts a 'spam score' header before passing the message to the Oracle Collaboration Suite server. It requires no maintenance or additional hardware and protects the entire enterprise from spam through server-based policies on the network level. Customers can easily adjust its filter strength; at its default settings it catches more than 90 percent of spam with far less than one percent 'false positives'. Mailshell also offers an optional desktop component allowing individual users to fine tune spam filtering to meet personal preferences.
