      Now outdated but the product technology was market leading

      With spam becoming a very serious problem something needs to be done, it has been calculated that of the total emails sent a day 60% are spam or unwanted. Spam are e mails which you did not ask to receive and they are trying to sell you something which you probably don't want. I was regularly receiving 250 e mails a day and only wanting 30 of them. Which as you can imagine was very frustrating, i was continually getting warnings that i had low space on my email account, sometimes these e mails gave me a viruses. Generally they plagued my inbox.
      Then there was light, i bought NAS 2004 which i was skeptical about at first, i had tried numerous free versions before which all failed. Anyway i installed it, quick and easy. Then it started to train itself to me using its technology, it could tell what e mails i would want. I use outlook express and it adds a folder and directs all the mail it thinks are spam to this folder. From there you can delete them. At first some of my legitimate mail went in there but you can just add the address to the trusted list. Soon it was trained and my inbox was much friendlier. It updates automatically and even tells you the percentage e mail that is legitimate and that is spam. It doesn't slow down receiving mail and is very efficient.

      However I had a problem where by it clashed With AVG, but the support team soon solved this. Also if you check your mail from another computer the spam is back so if you check your e mails through a website they will still appear.
      Over all a very efficient and easy to use product.
