If you thought that Christmas was coming and the goose was getting fat, then think again. The only thing getting fat at the moment is users’ inboxes as they become inundated with spam.

Many of us will remember the days when we arrived at work, logged onto our computers, and sat sipping our coffee while we contemplated the day ahead and what we would achieve.

However, according to BlackSpider Technologies, this key part of the morning is being stolen by illegal spammers. Now, for most of us, the morning starts with a wasted 15-20 minutes of finding, and then deleting the unwanted rubbish (spam) that was delivered overnight. And in addition to wasting time, it is also increasing our stress levels.

John Cheney, Managing Director of BlackSpider Technologies explains: “Spam causes a major disruption to a worker’s morning. Instead of having a coffee and planning the day’s activities, employees are starting the day frustrated about wasting time while deleting spam. Many users are unable to identify their legitimate business mail from the spam, and that is without considering the offensive nature of a large proportion of the unwanted mail.” Cheney continued, “Most of our customers have reduced their inbound mail by more than 50% since implementing MailControl. That means that more than half of their e-mail was spam – which is a lot of unwanted mail!”

“Before implementing BlackSpider’s MailControl solution, I knew of a number of users who dreaded opening up their inboxes first thing because of the tide of spam that would have arrived overnight” said Paul Vernon, Systems Manager, Boosey and Hawkes. “Now, instead of starting the day with an increasing number of complaints about the quantity of spam people have received, we have actually received unprompted praise from grateful users who are no longer inundated with spam.”
