During the latest competition, which ran for just over two weeks, OnlyMyEmail accurately blocked more spam than all other spam filters, not missing even a single spam email out of 225,571 messages, 216,053 of which were spam. This was the largest test corpus in 6 years of competitions an OnlyMyEmail alone stopped 100% of the spam.
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 145 spam emails, Sophos allowing 249 and SpamHaus failing to capture 3,510 emails from the exact same live feed of messages.
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, over the years, OnlyMyEmail has significantly outperformed a total of 39 other systems including hardware appliances, software programs and other Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions.
Quoting from the VBSpam review:
“OnlyMyEmail’s catch rate hasn’t dipped lower than 99.99% for the past four years. On occasion it has even been a full 100% – as it was in this test”
