Numero Uno with their BEST BUY Rating, with 98 percent spam caught.
Here is what they said: "Sunbelt is the only antispam vendor that
offers toll-free phone support; we called and were connected with
a human immediately. And at $20 its software is also the cheapest.
That price, combined with the program's ease of use and top-notch
performance, makes iHateSpam a no-brainer for Outlook users."

If you are interested in iHateSpam Server Edition, here is some
ammo for your management. San Francisco-based Ferris Research
Inc., a high-tech consultancy specializing in e-mail and
communications, which found that in 2003, junk mail accounted
for 15 to 20 percent of inbound corporate e-mail, and dealing
with it will cost U.S. organizations $10-billion (U.S.), up
from $9-billion last year.
A Ferris spokesman later explained that the average corporate
e-mail user receives three or four spam messages each day,
spends an average of 4.5 seconds on each one, and costs the
company an average of $10 a month to dump it. Over time, the
Ferris spokesman said, these figures add up.
Ferris arrived at the $10-billion figure by calculating such
things as the cost of computing resources, time spent by the
e-mail admin and help-desk personnel and lost productivity.

Lawyers Lie In Wait For HIPAA Regs
Attorneys nationwide reportedly plan to deploy decoy patients
at health care organizations to see if doctors, dentists,
hospitals and insurance companies have the policies, procedures
and protections that ensure patients' privacy, as required by
the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability
The long-awaited privacy rule goes into effect Monday. Health
care organizations that don't comply risk hefty fines, possible
criminal prosecution and costly civil lawsuits. Companies have
had two years to educate staff, designate a privacy officer and
adopt basic security measures. But there's a good chance some
providers will miss the deadline.
The threat of lawsuits may be a stronger motivator than government
fines or jail time, says Kate Borten, a security consultant and
president of The Marblehead Group in Massachusetts. "The government
has publicly stated it will be very forgiving if an organization
demonstrates it meant well and has taken steps to become compliant,"
While most of the privacy rule revolves around policy and procedure,
it does outline some mandatory security measures. Another HIPAA
component, the transactions and code rule, includes requirements
for using AES-strength encryption for any electronic data
transmissions, such as claims sent between medical providers
and insurance companies. Read more at the site of InfoSecurity
magazine, also in this issue a bunch of your peers are asked
if they consider spam a security problem. Interesting reading:
Here are best-of-breed security tools to help you get compliant:
Very Useful Little Tool: Attachment Options
Attachment Options is an Outlook 2002, Outlook 2000 SP3 and Outlook
2003 COM add-in that provides a user interface for changing which
file types are restricted as Level 1 attachments. Level 1 attachments
are hidden by Outlook, and cannot be seen, saved or opened from Outlook
items. Moving an attachment extension to Level 2 enables the user to
see the attachment and to save it to the file system. The attachment
saved to the file system can later be opened by the user. This little
program is a Godsend. I couldn't get .HLP files, driving me nuts:
