The International Nature of Spam

Just today, I came across two articles lamenting “International Spam”…

  • Why No One Can Beat Spam - CIO Today – April 27, 2006
    "The international nature of spam is a significant challenge. It requires a complex network to fight it, and participation." Maneesha Mithal, FTC Acting Associate Director for International Consumer Protection.




Just a little bit of "GOOGLING" and the solution is a “no-brainer”…

GET BUSINESS eMAIL ONLY FROM COUNTRIES WHERE YOU DO BUSINESS.

Your have no clients in Brazil, so block all mail originating in Brazil. Your company does no business in Nigeria, block all mail originating in Nigeria.

You get the picture so why get the email?

The solution (and with full disclosure I am biased) is XE-Filter, a country-centric IP-based email filter. Simple in concept and XE-Filter works with all existing antispam products.

I don't need email from Myanmar and with XE-Filter I don't receive any.
