The results from OnlyMyEmail’s sixth Virus Bulletin VBSpam Challenge competition have been released.
For the sixth time in a row, OnlyMyEmail’s MX-Defender stopped more spam than any of the 23 competing spam solutions. OnlyMyEmail missed just one single spam message out of 171,963 total, for a new record spam filtering capture rate of 99.9994% besting the previous record of 99.9993% – also set by OnlyMyEmail in a previous competition.
By comparison, the next best capture rate was McAfee SaaS which missed 41 spam messages. The third best capture rate was AnubisNetworks which missed 97 spam emails.
The average “false-negative” rate among the other 22 filtering systems was a whopping 3,471 missed spam messages and the median was 272.
