The Software Labs, Inc. adds SPAM prevention solution to 'PageAbility' Mail-Link wireless e-mail forwarding software
PageAbility's "Dual-Phase SPAM Filtering System" prevents 99% of junk e-mail from being fowarded to wireless devices

Redmond, WA, October 9, 1998: The Software Labs, Inc., a worldwide leader in advanced wireless messaging software solutions, has added its 'Dual-Phase SPAM Filtering System' to 'PageAbility Mail-Link,' the company's wireless e-mail and PC-scheduler connectivity product. PageAbility is now the only wireless e-mail connectivity solution on the market that prevents junk e-mail from reaching users' wireless devices.

"If SPAM is a serious problem for e-mail users, it's a total disaster for wireless device users," said Fred Horowitz, President of The Software Labs. "For the wireless subscriber, junk e-mail is not only an inconvenience, it is a very real threat to the user's or his or her employer's pocket book. SPAM messages are often quite long, and if wireless subscribers make the mistake of using their regular email clients to forward messages to their digital phones or pagers, then overcall charges can mount up at a shocking rate."

PageAbility's Dual Phase SPAM Filtering System does not rely on a list of known spammers and requires minimal input on the part of the user. Other features, such as the specially designed e-mail filtering system, custom message formatting, "Shorthand Translator," and "Redundant Character Reduction" also go a long way to optimize the quality of information in each wireless message while reducing overall messaging costs.

"We designed PageAbility from the ground up to fulfill the special needs of the wireless device user," said Mr. Horowitz. "Today, keeping wirelessly connected to your regular email is as important as wireless voice communications. But at what cost? When you start to dig into the factors that make the experience wireless users unique, you begin to realize that there is a great deal more to making wireless email connectivity usable and efficient than simply channeling messages from one medium to another. The email and wireless mediums are vastly different, and the challenge of reconciling those differences has to be met at the receiver end of the messaging process. PageAbility processes information that is designed to be read on a 15-inch or larger monitor and intelligently transfers it to wireless devices with tiny LCD's and limited memory."
