Transcript ew spam reduction program garnering vsittv response Story by Mark Smith hen they began issuing addresses under the University's Internet mail server a decade ago, UH administrators may have envisioned abuse of the e-mail box by advertisers. No one, including the federal government, has discovered a reliable solution to the problem of spam. Many Internet advertisers remain a step ahead of the existing blocking technology. While Congress and state governments consider legislation to criminalize and deter spamers, Internet service providers have been compelled to developed their own programs. UH finally joined the fray, launching its spam protection software in May 2005. The spam reduction tool, dubbed PureMessage, shelters users of the mail.uh.edu and central.uh.edu mail servers. Information Technology administrates the program and claims that its accuracy of spam detection is upwards of 98 percent. Sophos, the company that designed PureMessage, is also involved in the administration of the program. Initial feedback has been positive, although PureMessage is the first reduction tool of its kind employed by UH. One loophole in the program is that mail redirected to a server other than mail.uh.edu or central.uh.edu will not be protected. Redirected mail remains a dilemma for many companies. In the past, America Online struggled to protect e-mail redirected to its colossal Aol.com network from other servers. The Web site outlines additional program features. PureMessage, for instance, also provides limited virus protection and quarantines infected e-mail outside the main inbox. PureMessage flags e-mails it identifies as spam with a special tag "*****SPAM*****!' Suspected spam not identified with the tag can be reported to either IT or Sophos. A database of restricted spamers will be compiled based, in part, on the response of uh.edu e- mailers. IT also established a Web site and support telephone line to field comments and suggestions from PureMessage customers. The Web site outlines additional program features. PureMessage, for instance, also provides limited virus protection and quarantines infected e-mail outside the main inbox. In other words, the program does not count spam against a user's disk quota, saving space for additional e-mail. IT techs can also provide UH students, faculty and staff information on how to customize the PureMessage technology if the plan to maintain their e-mail accounts long-term. Users can establish a log-in ID (usually an e-mail alias) and password on the IT website and use its quarantined site to modify PureMessage settings at any time. IT will conduct surveys periodically to test the effectiveness of PureMessage. The first round of canvassing was completed the second week of June. IT, and UH administrators, were pleased with the results: 76 percent of respondents reported a noticeable reduction of spam in their inbox. Future survey results will be published on IT's main Web site. B 94
