DedicatedNOW Partners with MailChannels to Combat Email Spam and Provide Premium Email Security to Customers

September 8, 2009 by  

Web Hosting ToolsClifton, NJ – DedicatedNOW, a leading managed dedicated server hosting company, announced today a new partnership with MailChannels, a carrier-grade spam pre-filter that cuts email traffic volume by up to 95% before it hits your existing anti-spam infrastructure. The DedicatedNOW and MailChannels partnership will enhance email delivery times for hosting customers while reducing unsolicited emails from spammers.

“Our partnership with MailChannels will drastically improve the speed of inbound mail filtering by utilizing email traffic shaping technology provided by the MailChannels Traffic Control security product,” said Josh Ewin, Director of Sales and Marketing at DedicatedNOW. “The result is a dramatic reduction in spam volume as well as a reduction in email infrastructure costs.”

MailChannels has conducted in-depth research on spam behavior, discovering a critical behavioral aspect of spammers; specifically that the average spammer will only wait 5 seconds for successful delivery of an email (as opposed to an average of 6 minutes for a legitimate email). Delaying email delivery by a few more seconds causes spammers to give up on mail delivery.

“We applaud DedicatedNOW’s proactive approach to ensuring a faster, more reliable messaging experience for their customers,” said Ken Simpson, CEO of MailChannels. “Traffic Control’s patent-pending real-time SMTP multiplexing technology lets more email to be processed simultaneously, thus allowing MailChannels traffic shaping to work, and mail transfer agents (MTAs) to withstand larger email floods without being overwhelmed.”

With Traffic Control in place, spamming software ultimately gives up on sending unsolicited emails. Spammers are too impatient to wait for a slow or unresponsive server because spammers do not make money if the unsolicited email is not delivered. The technology provided by MailChannels uses a network of participating customers to determine the trustworthiness of
senders based on delivery times and protocol compliance.

“DedicatedNOW customers want their email delivered as quickly as possible without spam emails,” said Ewin. “By offering this new layer of anti-spam protection, our dedicated hosting customers will enjoy a more efficient and productive email experience.”
