GFI Offers Freeware Enterprise Anti-Spam Tool for Exchange

Is spam becoming a serious problem on your Exchange servers? Messaging tools vendor GFI is offering a way for enterprises to back into anti-spamming tools without committing money up front.

The company on Wednesday announced a freeware version of its server-based, anti-spam component of GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP 8. The software runs on Exchange 2000, Exchange 5.5, Lotus Notes and SMTP mail servers.

The freeware version checks e-mail senders against GFI's blacklist, allows administrators to maintain local blacklists at the server level and provides a whitelist management tool. Spam blacklists check e-mails against a database of known spammers and blocks e-mails from offending domains. Spam whitelists allow organizations to always allow mail through from certain senders or domains. The freeware version checks messages against the ORDB and Spamhaus real-time blacklists.

The free download is a 60-day trial version of GFI MailEssentials, a toolset that also includes e-mail disclaimers, mail archiving and monitoring, Internet mail reporting, server-based auto replies and POP3 downloading. The anti-spam features will work after the 60-day trial period ends, according to GFI.

The download is available at www.gfi.com/mes.
