Mailshell Investment in OEM Technology Reflects Commitment to Global Customer Base

SANTA CLARA, CA - July 1, 2004 - Mailshell, the OEM anti-spam leader, today announced two significant enhancements to its flagship Mailshell Anti-Spam SDK. The company's core anti-spam engine now utilizes Mailshell's new SpamCompiler AI technology that combines and optimizes more than 300,000 checks of each message to more accurately determine if a message is spam. Mailshell also announced the launch of two new data centers to accommodate its growing global installed base. "Powered by Mailshell" spam filters are currently deployed by more than 4,000 companies and 10 million users worldwide.

Mailshell's SpamCompiler AI™ technology optimizes compiles and executes more than 300,000 checks to determine if a message is spam or not. SpamCompiler AI™ conducts thousands of simultaneous calculations in a fraction of a second. By combining a fast, compact, flexible, complete decision tree with an automatically self-tuning intelligent engine, Mailshell is able to consistently generate highly accurate results in recognizing spam.

Unlike other anti-spam solutions that choose between catch rates versus false positives, accuracy versus throughput, etc., the Mailshell SDK is designed to consistently maximize speed, accuracy, and ease of use.

Mailshell opened two new data centers this month. In addition to its California-based center, Mailshell now hosts relevant SDK-related databases in New York and Paris, with plans to add a fourth data center in Asia later this year.
