Simple spam Filtering with SimpleFilter

September 14th, 2003

It’s been about 18 months in the making. An idea, then a prototype, then some hard work, then more hard work, and a whole bunch of testing, tweaking, and refinement.

Tim Aiello and I just launched our new spam-identification service this evening. It’s called SimpleFilter.

SimpleFilter is a service for anyone who uses POP3 email. Go have a look for yourself at http://www.simplefilter.com. It’s free to try out. It’s highly accurate, doesn’t require any software installation or messing with settings.

The biggest lesson to be had in making Simplefilter is that it takes A LOT of work to make something simple. Big thanks to all the beta testers – you know who you are.

Now go tell all your friends. Both of them. :)

Did I mention it’s Simple?

  1. Pretty cool service and from what I can tell these types are services are really catching on.

    I’ve played with the idea of doing something similar but since it smacks directly opposite of my own “product” I’ve dropped the idea.

    I’ll have to put this as a link on my blog for people to check out. Your pricing is absolutely rock bottom. It will be interesting to hear your success stories as you gain traction with customers.

    Don’t you just love the mail protocols though and how everyone on the ‘net has properly configured their servers and clients? (/sarcasm off)
