Security magazine Virus Bulletin has issued the results of a new test of spam blocking software.
The second edition of the test pitted anti-spam filters against an archived collection of spam messages, and a live stream of email from addresses set up by testers. Products were scored for the percentage of spam messages detected and the number of false positives returned.
Two of the nine products tested earned the highest 'platinum' certification. The top performers were Kaspersky's Anti-Spam 3.0 and Message Architects' M+ Guardian spam blocker.
Giacom's MessageStream service earned a 'gold' certification, while WebRoot's E-Mail Security, FortiMail and BitDefender Security for Mail Servers all earned 'silver' certifications.
Pint-size luxury and funky style
