For the twelfth consecutive time, OnlyMyEmail has again blocked more spam than any other filtering system in the Virus Bulletin VBSpam Challenge.
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 just 1 single spam email out of 134,418 total. This represents a spam capture rate of 99.9993%.
By comparison, the next best capture rate was Libra Esva which missed 56 emails in total. The third best blocking rate went to Kaspersky LMS which missed 94 spam emails from the same corpus. The worst performers, missing well over 1,000 spam emails included: Bitdefender, IBM, CronLab, Vamsoft ORF and SPAMfighter, Spamhaus ZEN+DBL and SURBL.
The VBSpam Competition has become more difficult this year, and the average “false-negative” rate among the other competing filtering systems tested was an near all time high of 1,044 missed spam messages with a median of 392 junk emails penetrating other filters.
To calculate the average of 1,044 missed spam emails, we’ve omitted the results from the two worst performing filters, SPAMfighter and SURBL which missed 7,428 and 44,324 spam messages respectively. Including such poor performances in the calculations would skew the average 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, 33 other systems including hardware appliances, software programs and other Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions.
Quoting from the VBSpam review:
“After 12 tests, it is hard to find appropriate adjectives to describe OnlyMyEmail’s catch rate, but as the product missed only a single spam message in a corpus of well over 34,000 emails, ‘impressive’ is an understatement.”
