Provides Existing Email Providers an Effective Tool in the Battle Against
TORONTO, Jan. 31 /CNW/ - Tucows Inc., (AMEX: TCX, TSX:TC) a leading
provider of Internet services to web hosting companies and ISPs worldwide,
today announced the availability of a powerful solution to the global problem
of spam. The Tucows Email Service now offers providers the option of using the
spam and virus filtering portion of the service in conjunction with their
current email infrastructure. The Tucows Email Service will continue to be
available as a fully-hosted email service for those looking for a complete
end-to-end email solution.
Tucows Email Service customers are able to select between fully-hosted
email service, complete with POP3, IMAP, WAP and webmail access and 2GB of
mail storage, or they may opt to continue to provide their own email access
and storage while using the Tucows Email Service as a gateway that traps
unwanted email at the front-door. Providers who choose this filtering-only
option will benefit from a significant reduction in the volume of messages
reaching existing email infrastructure while providing high-quality email
filtering for their users.
"Our approach with the Tucows Email Service is to deliver the tools our
customers need to provide simple, reliable and cost-effective email to their
users," said Kim Phelan, Director, Messaging, Tucows. "We recognize that some
existing providers of email want to continue to manage their own email
infrastructure, but at the same time, might want to offload the increasingly
challenging task of managing spam for their users. Providing the Tucows Email
Service as an anti-spam filtering solution without the associated storage and
inbox access addresses this need."
The Tucows Email Service Features:
- Fully-hosted accounts include 2GB of storage, and IMAP, POP, WAP and
AJAX-enabled webmail access.
- For customers who choose the filtering-only option, a web-based spam
quarantine is available that allows end users to review and manage
- The Tucows Email Service runs on virtual servers. This allows for ease
of management in upgrading the environment's components, and in adding
- Management of Tucows Email Service is done through the web-based Mail
Administration Center (MAC) or via an API.
