For the thirteenth consecutive evaluation, OnlyMyEmail has again blocked more spam than any other filtering system in the Virus Bulletin VBSpam Challenge and secured yet another first place finish.
The latest competition ran for 16 consecutive days, during which, OnlyMyEmail’s MX-Defender accurately filtered out more spam than all other competitors tested, missing not even one spam email out of 64,988 total. This represents a never before seen spam capture rate of 100%.
In addition, OnlyMyEmail created zero false-positive results (blocking of legitimate emails) during the test, resulting in an overall perfect score.
By comparison, the next best capture rate was a tie between Libra Esva and Scrollout with both missed 17 emails in total and created false-positives of 1 and 25 respectively. The third best blocking rate went to Zerospam which missed 73 spam emails from the same corpus. The worst performers, missing well over 300 spam emails each included: IBM, McAfee SaaS, Sophos, SPAMfighter, Vamsoft, Spamhaus ZEN+DBL and SURBL.
The average “false-negative” rate among the other competing filtering systems tested was 270 missed spam messages with a median of 261 junk emails penetrating other filters.
To calculate the average and median values we’ve omitted the results from the two worst performing filters, Spamhaus ZEN+DBL and SURBL which missed 3,164 and 27,183 spam messages respectively. Including such low capture rates in these calculations would skew the average and median too greatly.
The results from Virus Bulletin’s VBSpam Challenge have proven, time and again, that OnlyMyEmail’s MX-Defender is decisively superior to any other spam defense available today, having stopped a far higher rate of spam than any other filter tested since the VBSpam Competition began in 2009.
In all, OnlyMyEmail has competed against, and defeated, 34 other systems including hardware appliances, software programs and other Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions.

Quoting from the VBSpam review:
“This month’s test sets included more than 60,000 spam emails, more than 9,000 legitimate emails and a number of newsletters as well. That is more than the average person receives in a full year. Keep this in mind when you consider the fact that OnlyMyEmail’s hosted anti-spam solution did not classify any of these emails incorrectly. Not a single one. To say that the product’s VBSpam+ award is well deserved is quite an understatement.”
