LexiConn gets serious about SPAM

COLCHESTER, CT -- June 12, 2002 -- LexiConn Internet Services, a privately held provider of web hosting and ecommerce services, today announced that it has introduced a new tool to actively stop SPAM emails for all of its users.

LexiConn has developed an integrated software program with its easy to use control panel that makes it a one click step to install the SpamAssassin software, a program that blocks spam emails. What makes this spam blocking software unique is a client can now adjust settings, add addresses to their block and allowed lists, and determine what will happen with email tagged as spam by choosing easy to understand options right from their web browser.

"With spam emails approaching unbearable levels, our system will now allow our clients to deal with spam according to their rules, instead of an all or nothing approach" says Robert Mangiafico, CTO of LexiConn. "Some people want spam to be deleted before it reaches them, while others would like spam related emails to only be tagged as SPAM in the header, so they can filter them with their email program and not lose any email. Other users may opt to not have any spam protection in place at all. This is now possible with LexiConn."

LexiConn plans to run the software system wide for a small monthly fee beginning today. LexiConn's selection of SpamAssassin is a solid one, as the open source software model is one where security and efficiently written code is the standard. And with SpamAssassin, there is a large open source community that is dedicated to the prevention of spam email. This translates into a software system that will be kept up to date and continually improved.
