Predictions for the future costs of spam don’t look any brighter. It is estimated that 58 billion junk emails will be sent every day within the next four years, a figure that will cost businesses some $198 billion annually.
How It Works:
TNL Antispam will check your POP3 Email box and weed through your incoming mail messages. There are several processes that TNL antispam uses to eliminate spam from your inbox. Using a combination of filter and challenge & response technology TNL Antispam proudly offers an unheard of false-positive rate (legitimate email falsely marked as spam), with minimal user intervention.
Below is an outline of the process:
1: Is this person a friend?
Incoming mail is checked against your list of friends. This list of friends contains full email addresses as well as partial wildcard matches. So for example, if you wanted mark every email address at tnlsoft.com as friends. You could simply add tnlsoft.com on your friends list. This FRIENDS list can also be imported from address books from popular email programs like Outlook.
If a mail message is from a friend it is left alone and it stays in your POP3 mailbox.
Step 2: Is this person banned?
Incoming mail is then checked through your list of banned addresses. This works exactly like your friends list except mail from a banned email address is automatically deleted from your mailbox.
Step 3: Does it meet the filters?
Incoming mail is then run through a set of filters which you can easily modify. If it meets filter criteria the message will be automatically deleted OR you can tell TNL Antispam to automatically add the email address to your friends list or add it to your banned list.
Step 4: Attempt to find out if this is from a legitimate source.
If the sender of a message passed the filters, is not found on your friends list or your banned list the following process takes place.
• The message in question is removed from your POP3 Box and placed in a 'holding' queue.
• TNL Antispam will dispatch an email (called an authentication request) asking the sender to confirm that they are a real person. The sender only need to reply to the email to confirm themselves. The email itself contains unique identifiers which will be verified when the email comes back to TNL Antispam.
• Once the sender replies to the authentication request. The message is removed from the 'holding' queue and placed back into your POP3 box.
• This person is then added to your friends list.
• If a person does not respond you can tell TNLAS to automatically delete the message after 10 days (or how ever long you tell TNLAS to hold held mail).
Messages in the holding queue are viewable through the program and you have the ability to manually approve or deny individual messages if you so choose.
