In addition to complete solutions, we offer the following independant packages:

POPFile - Spam Management

Your company's most publicized email addresses (sales reps, managers, etc.) are likely also the addresses most often targeted by spammers. ("Spam" is unsolicited bulk email, often pornographic in nature). Spammers search the web for email addresses, and add them to massive lists of "possible targets". The more web sites there are that contain your email address, the more spam you will receive. (Sometimes, when you click the "unsubscribe" link on a spam email, you are simply alerting the spammer that your email address is "active", and you start receiving more spam!)

Spam is hard to block automatically, since each email typically comes with a different subject, and a different sender address. Spammers don't want their mail to be blocked, so they try to be as unpredictable as possible.

POPFile utilizes Bayesian statistical theory to classify emails based on the content of the email itself, rather than the sender or the subject. As POPFile filters your email, it "learns" (builds a bayesian corpus) from your classifications, thereby adapting itself to the types of email you receive.

POPFile will classify your email as you download it. It will modify the subject line of suspect email (prepending "[spam]" to the subject line), allowing you to easily filter it in your email client. (Set Outlook to delete all emails whose subject start with "[spam]")

POPFile will never delete email. It simply makes it easier for your email client to decide what to do with the email.

POPFile is administered via its web-interface. In the initial stages of installation, POPFile must be "trained" (you tell POPFile which emails are spam). Through the web-interface, you can monitor the accuracy of your classification, change the configuration of your server, etc.

Jabber IM

Jabber is an open-source IM (Instant Messaging, similar to ICQ, Yahoo! Messenger, etc.) server. Jabber can be deployed within your intranet, allowing secure instant messaging across your LAN/WAN, while also facilitating communication with proprietary global networks ICQ, AIM, Yahoo! Messenger, and MSN Messenger.

Use Jabber to see which of your colleagues are online, pop up instant messages on their screen, host text-based chats with multiple users, and chat to your friends worldwide on the proprietary networks (above).

Jabber can be integrated into your qmail-ldap email system, providing an email-to-jabber gateway, a common username/password database (your jabber username and password are identical to your email username and password), and the ability to grant/deny access to jabber on a per-user basis.
