Spam-free inboxes

Date: March 17, 2006

A new security toolbar has been launched with the aim of protecting your email inbox from offensive spam, online fraud and phishing attacks by verifying the reputation of the email sender.

Launched by CipherTrust, the toolbar continuously monitors the reputation of email senders around the world, enabling it to identify spam mailers and phishing email senders instantly.

For the home email user, the TrustedSource Toolbar sits along the top of the inbox and displays a green, smiley face when the user highlights received mail from a verified sender and a red, 'frowny' face for email where the sender is unknown.
