JOI INTERNET UNVEILS A NEW SOLUTION TO ELIMINATE SPAM - A 'SPAM KILLER'
ATLANTA, GA - May 28, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Joi Internet, (pronounced "Joy"),
unveils a new solution to eliminate spam. The new anti-spam technology -- called
"Friends & Foes" -- eliminates almost 100 percent of all junk e-mail and lets
Joi users choose from whom they would agree to receive mail. Joi Internet's
"Friends & Foes" turns the spammer's top weapon against it.
Here's how it works: Spam mailers use automated software to send millions of
e-mails. Joi Internet "Friends & Foes" mail system sends an automated reply
asking the mailer to confirm that the sender is legitimate. To get the e-mail
through, the mailer has to respond to the system simply by hitting the reply
button. Since "spam" messages do not have a valid return email address, their
annoying and often pornographic content will never be delivered.
Once a sender is verified by Joi's "Friends and Foes" system, the sender's email
address is placed in the user's "Friends" list, mail from that person zips to
the in-box without going through the confirmation system ever again. A unique
feature of Joi's "Friends & Foes," a user can place an approved "Friend" on the
"Foe" list and stop all future e-mails from the sender, until the user places
the sender back on the "Friends" list. The e-mail filtering system is Web-based,
so it will work with any type of computer and you can manage the "Friends &
Foes" filter from anywhere.
Joi "Friends & Foes" will add strength to the fight against spammers and
unwanted forced advertising. Joi is committed to providing its customers,
"Absolutely, The Best Possible Internet Service for The Best Possible Price,
Always," said David Norman, Joi Internet Vice President of Marketing.
