GessWorks Announces MIMEShield as the Spam Filter of Choice  

Premiere spam filter product, MIMEShield, to be demonstrated at Lotusphere 2004 in Orlando

ORLANDO, Fla January 26, 2004 With the recent proliferation of spam, corporations are losing billions of dollars in productivity. GessWorks, Inc. has created a solution called MIMEShield, a unique spam trapping mechanism for Lotus Notes/Domino environments. The MIMEShield software has had such a positive impact on initial releases, the company will demonstrate the product’s exceptional spam trapping features at the 10th annual Lotusphere in Orlando, Florida. 

Companies world-wide, from non-profits to publishing companies, are now able to continue “work as usual” due to MIMEShield’s ability to thwart spam right at the e-mail server’s pipeline source – the internet. “I appreciate MIMEShield’s flexibility of allowing each e-mail user to instruct the system to release valid emails”, says Carl E. Reid, Lotus Notes Administrator at the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America in New York City. Mr. Reid further adds, Considering the heightened sensitivity of our organization to undesirable e-mail, MIMEShield is an invaluable tool that intuitively automates spam filtering. I can focus on more important administration duties. 

Eric Clemens, Vice President of IT at Grace Marketing in Cleveland, Ohio, adds, “Grace Marketing is pleased to state that we have become a more secure, efficient and cost-effective company thanks to the Lotus-based, anti-spam solution provided by GessWorks.” Mr. Clemens adds, “Over the past two years, our employees have been inundated with solicitations and inappropriate content during the business day. Our objective was to take a preventative measure to protect our employees and safeguard our firm from unacceptable messages and potentially harmful communication. MIMEShield provides us with this protection.” 

The future of effective anti-spam applications relies on using many tools and strategies to prevent spam from entering the messaging network. “MIMEShield is now fully loaded with next generation spam prevention tools, including our Bayesian analysis mechanism. With these features, our client base will benefit with a spam-free organization, all from within the comfort of their Notes/Domino environment.” says Greg Gessel, President of GessWorks.
