OnlyMyEmail Captures First Place in VBSpam Competition

For the 20th consecutive competition, OnlyMyEmail’s MX-Defender blocked more spam than any other filtering system in the Virus Bulletin VBSpam Challenge and secured yet another first place finish.

During the latest competition, which ran for 13 consecutive days, OnlyMyEmail accurately blocked more spam than all other spam filters, missing only one spam email out of 82,206 total. This represents a capture rate of 99.9988%.

In addition, OnlyMyEmail did not create a single false-positive result (blocking of legitimate emails) during the test, resulting in another VBSpam+ award.

By comparison, well known solutions performed much worse, with Kaspersky missing 84 spam emails, Sophos allowing 159 and McAfee failing to capture 442 emails from the exact same live feed of messages; with Kaspersky and McAfee both blocking multiple legitimate emails as well.

The worst performers were Spamhaus ZEN+DBL which allowed 7,439 spam emails for a capture rate of 90.95% and the SURBL which missed 53,864 meaning they only blocked 34.48% of all spam.

The results from Virus Bulletin’s VBSpam Challenge continually document 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 defeated 37 other systems including hardware appliances, software programs and other Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions.

Quoting from the VBSpam review:

“When it comes to blocking spam, OnlyMyEmail has outperformed its fellow participants in every VBSpam test it has taken part in (including this one).”
