Mailshell Anti-Spam Desktop (Access for 1 Person)

SKU: G-41878


Mailshell Anti-Spam Desktop is a desktop-based spam-filtering solution for Windows users that intercepts incoming email messages before they reach the user's inbox.

Mailshell's four spam-identification engines perform more than one million filter checks to identify spam with a high accuracy rate and a near-zero false-positive rate. Users can choose their filter strength and decide if they want spam put in its own folder, deleted, bounced, or simply marked so they will know to avoid it.

Compatibility with Email Clients

Two versions of Mailshell Anti-Spam Desktop are available:

  • The Outlook Edition is fully and transparently integrated with Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003, and 2007. No setup is necessary. Mailshell controls appear in the Outlook interface.
  • The Universal Edition supports Eudora, Netscape Messenger, Outlook, Outlook Express, and most POP email clients.

Requesting and Downloading Mailshell Anti-Spam Desktop

Order one copy of the software for each workstation that requires it. You need not select a version during the ordering process, as you will be prompted to do so when you go to download the product.

When your product request has been approved, an email will be sent to your organization email address containing a registration key for each copy of Mailshell Anti-Spam Desktop you ordered and instructions for downloading the software. You can download either version for a particular workstation. (For example, if you requested 5 Mailshell Anti-Spam Desktop products, you may download 3 of the Outlook Edition and 2 of the Universal Edition)

Mailshell keys expire 15 months from the date TechSoup receives them. To get a full year of use, you should activate your Mailshell installations within 3 months.

Includes One Year of Updates

This donation includes spam signature file updates for one year. After a year, the Mailshell Anti-Spam Desktop software will continue to run, but spam updates will no longer be provided. Each year thereafter, you can choose to receive an additional year of spam updates by requesting a new donation from TechSoup Canada.
