Danish spam-filtering service goes titsup

Ashes to Spamaches

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Danish anti-spam service Spamache has gone tits up.

Reg reader and Spamache subscriber Phil reports that the services stopped working on 5 October. The website became unavailable last week although its contents can still be retrieved from Google's cache (here).

The reason for the collapse of the service, which received some positive reviews in the tech press, remains unclear. The email address and fax number used by Spamache for customer contact purposes have both been taken out of service.

During its tenure, Spamache blocked 293 million spam messages. That's a small fraction of the number of messages blocked by higher profile services such as MessageLabs and BlackSpider.

Nonetheless, the loss of the service is a blow to its limited number of subscribers, some of whom at least have been left out of pocket by Spamache's collapse. "The service was paid for in advance, but to be honest I miss its services more than I worry about the lost money issue," Phil said. ®
