BullGuard releases a free spam filter
The free security download also comes with free, live technical support for the application.
On Wednesday, the Danish security company BullGuard announced it will offer its spam filter product as a free download. The BullGuard Spamfilter (download) integrates with Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail, and Mozilla Thunderbird e-mail clients. It runs on Windows 2000, XP, and Vista.
The BullGuard product relies upon fellow users to identify spam; once e-mail is marked as spam, all other Spamfilter users will no longer receive that e-mail in their in-boxes. It will be available within the spam folder instead.
According to Google's Postini, 2007 saw record spam levels, with as much as 90 percent of all e-mail traffic being unsolicited spam.
In addition to providing the free software, BullGuard is also offering Spamfilter users free, live 24-7 technical support.
