Spammers Gone Mad: 2 Billion Spam Mails Removed

Imagine receiving on average 2800 spam mails each day as is the case for one SPAMfighter user. SPAMfighter users such as this one are furious with the amount of spam being sent daily. Without spam filters such as SPAMfighter this would, in the best case, cost e-mail user's hours in simply sorting through e-mail. Read more about the SPAMfighter anti spam software here

Co-owner and founder Martin Thorborg has sympathy for these users after having to battle with spammers. "In our previous company, Jubii, we were overtaken by spammers, causing our mail server to stop working, and our users to be unable to send or receive email for a week. After this, it became our goal to help never have this happen to anyone again." Learn more about our struggle with spam e-mail here

With the ever increasing number of e-mail communications every day of both legitimate e-mail and spam, effective e-mail management has become more and more crucial. One example of how overwhelming spam can be can be seen in one SPAMfighter user. Over the course of 2 years, this user has on average received 3100 e-mails per day, and approximately 2800 of these were spam filtered by SPAMfighter. Fewer spam mails in user's inboxes equate to, at best, hours saved daily from sorting through spam and legitimate e-mails. This is just one such example.

Not only has SPAMfighter saved time for its users, but it has also decreased the risk to e-mail users for e-mail dangers such as phishing attacks or virus outbreaks. These forms of risks have been steeply increasing. Phishing occurs when an e-mail is sent to a user appearing to be a legitimate company, asking for personal details, such as credit card numbers. Users are scammed into giving out their personal information not finding out until later what actually happened. Read more about how to protect yourself from phishing attacks here

SPAMfighter continues to fight against spammers by filtering more and more spam mails daily for users such as the one named above. With over 2 billion spam mails spam mails filtered, users are saving hours of time, and at the same time protecting themselves from e-mail dangers.
