BANGALORE: Microsoft Corp. India Pvt. Ltd. today announced the availability of the Exchange Intelligent Message Filter. A part of Microsoft's anti-spam efforts, Intelligent Message Filter technology is available as a free add-on to Exchange Sever 2003. The technology has been designed to provide the latest anti-spam filtering innovations that will help protect corporate and private e-mail users from the growing deluge of spam. This technology is based on a machine-learning approach, where decisions regarding whether e-mail would be considered spam are made by e-mail customers themselves and then incorporated into a feedback loop to train the filter to know what to look for.

"According to the Gartner Group, 35 percent of all business messages received currently is spam. Interestingly, this is likely to go up to 50 percent by 2005. As the spam problem grows, customers are looking for greater protection through technological solutions," said Mr. Saurabh Misra, Product Marketing Manager, Microsoft India Pvt. Ltd. He further added, "Microsoft is committed to innovating and contributing on a broad spectrum of approaches to help address the growing problem of spam. With IMF, Exchange Server now has the best anti-spam tools for customers and offers the best overall protection from unwanted e-mail."

These new e-mail protection and filtering capabilities build on recent security improvements made to Exchange Server 2003 and Outlook 2003 that help to block both malicious content and spam at the gateway and client levels. This helps to put control of the inbox back into the hands of the users. In addition, support for safe and block sender lists, domain spoofing and a range of other spam-blocking and -filtering techniques built into the core Exchange 2003 product allow information technology administrators to focus on maintaining a healthy network, thereby helping to keep end users more productive.
