- Anti-Spam: Vicomsoft Provides the Total Solution
Spam emails are more than an annoyance. They are a threat. First, they may contain viruses of the type that infect the operating system of the client computer. These may spread over the LAN causing loss of data, productivity and network resources. They may contain viruses of the type that cause the email client to resend the virus to all the addresses in the address book. This may expose the organization to legal liability, and there are cases where legal action has been taken. Most instances of this type of virus simply replicate the original email, but there is nothing to stop someone from writing a virus that copies any random email, sending it to any random address, creating a veritable confidentiality risk.
