Web Hosting NewsPHOENIX – SmarterTools Inc. is proud to announce an agreement with Commtouch® (NASDAQ: CTCH) to provide Commtouch Anti-Spam with its SmarterMail mail server software. With the release of SmarterMail 6.x, Commtouch Anti-Spam will be available as an optional add-on for those users who want to enhance the mail server’s out-of-the-box anti-spam functionality.

“SmarterMail is a leader in out-of-the-box spam protection, and its anti-spam technologies allow for customized levels of protection with flexible configurations. While other mail servers may require users to choose between a third-party or integrated solution, SmarterMail’s unique architecture allows administrators to extend their anti-spam protection through multiple solutions,” said Tim Uzzanti, CEO of SmarterTools.

[swfobj src=”” width=”300/250″ class=”border: 1px solid grey;” align=”right”] Although SmarterMail 6.x will continue to provide up to 97% spam protection out of the box, the additional functionality of the Commtouch add-on will provide customers with nearly 100% spam protection.

“Commtouch is a great fit as a spam protection partner because its technology is complementary to SmarterMail’s existing techniques and the company has worked with us to create a licensing model that will make sense for our hosting and business customers,” Uzzanti continued. “Although many companies charge more for their anti-spam and antivirus measures than they do for their mail server software, we are committed to providing the Commtouch add-on as an affordable premium spam solution.”

The Commtouch add-on will be sold in licensing levels that correspond with the SmarterMail product levels. Pricing will be based on a yearly subscription that is consistent with SmarterTools’ commitment to exceptional value.

“Commtouch is excited to partner with SmarterTools to provide our enhanced spam protection in SmarterMail,” said Avner Amram, Commtouch executive vice president and general manager, Americas. “We are confident that SmarterTools’ millions of users will be thrilled with the Commtouch Anti-Spam technology, which will provide them with even greater protection options.”

SmarterMail is the cost-effective Microsoft Exchange alternative, bringing enterprise-level functionality to businesses, ISPs and Web hosting environments. Scalable and easy to manage, SmarterMail features a rich Webmail interface; collaboration; reporting; throttling; on-board anti-spam/antivirus; synchronization with Microsoft Outlook, BlackBerry, iPhone, and Windows Mobile devices; and an event-driven architecture that provides automated actions and notifications.
