Targets All Spam Sources
Traditional anti-spam software analyzes spam as it hits your inbox and filters it based on your preferences. As web hosts with years of experience we have learned that this method can be ineffective and places a huge burden on server resources. Spam accounts for over 98% of all the email traffic and most of it is from Trojans and Bots on infected computers around the world. It is possible to block this spam generating malware but the only way to accomplish this is to actually be "part" of the email server, so spam can be identified at the edge, during the "SMTP handshake" phase. This "Mail Server Profiling"™ is what makes MagicSpam so powerful. Tying into the SMTP daemon (PRE-DATA), and blocking these obvious bad sources of email, immediately reduces the burden on a server's resources and you also reduce "backscatter" problems which are caused if you try to check spam after the message has been accepted. And even more important blocking instead of filtering offers you more "Zero Day" prevention against new attackers and attacks, whether they be Spam or Dictionary Attacks, no matter what form they take, in images, videos, attachments, or even encrypted messages.
