    Hi, ive been elected to look into a better way of reducing spam from my office. :eek:

    Basically i came across a company called spamarrest and am wondering if its really up to par of if anyone knows any good companies to use for this.

    From what i got out of it, you sign up with them for a small fee. When a email is sent to a recipient, a auto email is sent back to the sender. It basically asks them to type a random goofy word into the security box and click on the link to verify your actually a real person. They are then added to a the approved sender list. Thus reducing the bot generated emails.

    Not sure if its worth while and how well it actually works...but thats why im asking :p

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    Thanks, any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    I don't know about spamarrest,but this: "When a email is sent to a recipient, a auto email is sent back to the sender. It basically asks them to type a random goofy word into the security box and click on the link to verify your actually a real person." doesn't sound so good!It can create confusion between the senders and also it can create lots of traffic.So you better look for another solution/company that will reduce spam.There are also some hardware solution around for fighting spam,you may wanna take a look at them too.
