"E-mail is becoming so important to business that e-mail systems must be upgraded for security and reliability. Sendmail is offering Sendmail Switch 2.1 and Sendmail Advanced Message Server as a step toward those goals in the enterprise, said Sendmail Chairman Greg Olsen."
"In February, Sendmail published application-programming interfaces for its Sendmail mail transport agent servers, giving companies the option of plugging in homegrown applications to filter their incoming mail. With Sendmail Switch 2.1, Sendmail provides the filtering application, said Greg Olson, chairman and cofounder."
"The filtering capability gives companies the opportunity search for viruses in the incoming mail stream before they reach their departmental email servers, he noted. They can filter out known sources of spam and even look for the command sequences that signal an intruder may be trying to search out an opening on a server."
