Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The latest IBM Lotus Domino 6 software is to include anti-spam features in a bid to give administrators more control in weeding out junk email.

Since the anti-spam technology is located on the server, the developers claim it will enable administrators to delete spam before it gets to the recipient.

Those behind the product also claim it could lead to lower administration and maintenance costs.

Features of the new software include increased support for administrators to control emails from certain mailing lists, plus "system mail rules" which enable administrators to filter mail based on content.

It's estimated that as much as 10 per cent of email received by employees at work is spam. This figure is expected to double in the next five years.

Said Lotus' Ken Bisconti: "The average e-mail user receives approximately 1,500 pieces of spam yearly and our commitment is to block the majority of unwanted e-mails from harrowed users' inboxes." ®
