OnlyMyEmail Stops More Spam 8 Competitions In A Row

Monday, April 16th, 2012

For the eighth time in a row, OnlyMyEmail has blocked more spam than any other email filter in the Virus Bulletin VBSpam Challenge.

Once again, OnlyMyEmail’s MX-Defender accurately filtered out more spam than all other competitors tested, missing just 4 spam emails out of 146,121 total. This represents a spam capture rate of 99.997%.

By comparison, the next best capture rate was SpamTitan which not only missed 47 spam emails, but also inadvertently blocked 600% more legitimate emails, known as false-positive results.

The average “false-negative” rate among the other 21 filtering systems tested was a whopping 293 missed spam messages and the median was 176.

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.

Quoting from the full VBSpam review:

In this test, OnlyMyEmail missed fewer than one in 36,000 spam messages. After several exceptional performances like this, we’ve almost stopped being surprised and thus it is good to note that many users do not even receive this much spam in a full year!
