The results from OnlyMyEmail’s seventh participation in the Virus Bulletin VBSpam Challenge competition have been released.
For the seventh time in a row, OnlyMyEmail’s MX-Defender has blocked more spam than any other competing spam filtering solution. This time, OnlyMyEmail missed just four spam messages out of 113,770 total, for a spam filtering capture rate of rate of 99.996% and did so without blocking even a single legitimate email.
By comparison, the next best capture rate was McAfee SaaS which missed 53 spam messages but did so with a whopping 20 false positive results as well. The second best capture of any spam filter with the same zero false positives as OnlyMyEmail was Mailshell with a disappointing 113 missed spam emails.
The average “false-negative” rate among the other 23 filtering systems was a whopping 519 missed spam messages and the median was 193.
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, including hardware appliances, software programs and other Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions solutions as well.
