The prevention of Spam or unsolicited mail is for most users very high on their priority list.
Statistics show that unfiltered over 80% of user’s mail arriving into their inbox will be Spam.
This can impact the business in many ways, loss of productivity, as users trawl through the mail looking for the genuine e-mail.
Loss of genuine emails as they are accidentally deleted in the “can’t see the wood from the trees” scenario.
Emails of a rude or crude nature can be sent to users causing unnecessary upset. Plus of course not forgetting the biggest conduit of viruses is email.
