SpamSentinel Testimonials

We believe in making you the hero
"SpamSentinel" is something only you know about. Your internal email users will never see a hint of it. If you pay for SpamSentinel, we never put our logo, our name, or any marketing messages in front of your users. And we'll certainly never contact them. They are yours and yours alone. Read the entire "What we believe" ....

"As I told you on the phone, the SpamSentinel is one of our favourite software we're using.

The easiest going software for admins I ever seen, and for endusers, too.

Maysoft did a great job!!

Thomas, Germany
"I am very happy with my purchase of SpamSentinel Server. We have roughly 75 employees at our agency and SpamSentinel captures over 10,000 spam emails or emails to invalid recipients every day! Our users noticed an immediate difference after installation, somewhere in the range of 80-90% spam emails removed. Many users sent me an email directly thanking me for finding this software.

Mayflower Software has been very responsive and keeps us informed of regular updates. In August, we noticed a technical issue with how the software handled emails to groups. I was put in contact with their lead developer who listened to the problem and incorporated the fix in the next update.

The best feature of this software is its accuracy rate. I was concerned about the software capturing real emails, but in testing I found a better than 99% accuracy rate. I have found zero false positives since the latest update which fixed our 'email to groups' issue. The only other issue I've had with the software is given the number of SPAMs caught, the Quarantine database takes a long time to open. Fortunately the reporting module will take care of that issue by sending a summary email to the users of their quarantined mail.

I encourage any Lotus Notes user interested in seriously reducing SPAM to try SpamSentinel."

"I have worked with Allison, Peter Bedford, Frank Paolino, Chris Rich, and Nick McCann at one time or another, and I have nothing but the highest praise for the way your company operates. I wish other software companies would take note of your customer service and expertise!

Thanks very much for all that you do, and I look forward to continuing to work with you all in the future. If I run into any problems I will give you a call or shoot an email to you in the process of our upgrade today."

"It has saved me a lot of time that I used to spend chasing down spam and creating word rules and filters. I rely on the software to stop spam, so I can worry about other IT issues now. Also, because I don't get any calls about enormous amounts of Spam, I have reduced my support costs."

"Having used your product for the past several years has made us a little complacent when it comes to Spam prevention. Your product has worked so well, we made the assumption all spam filters must work this well. Wrong assumption! After testing several leading competitors, from a Notes administrator's perspective, you guys got it right."

James A Eichorst, Wolverine Mutual Insurance Co.

"I have tried many of the "other" spam filtering packages out there, and have been disappointed by their failure to do what they advertise. Most of the other packages are made mostly for Exchange, and had pages upon pages of installation instructions. By far Spam Sentinel was the best. I downloaded the package, and had it up and running in about ten minutes, no need to build another server for relaying, no complicated installation. As a Lotus Administrator, I really like the ease of use of the package, and the end users ability to take control over their own inbox. I was sold on your product immediately. Good Job!"

"Thanks! I don't know how big your company is but I can tell you that some of the big companies in the world could learn a thing or two about your great support service! "

"My SpamSentinel trial stopped last Wednesday, and the amount of spam that we got skyrocketed! My boss has received so much spam (which he wasn't receiving during the 30 day trial) that he authorized me to purchase the product. I had tried a rules based product, which had 425 rules in place and took 1-3 hours of my time each week maintaining the content rules. SpamSentinel took no time at all during the trial. When my trial expired, I turned on my rules based filter again and I got 70-80 spam messages over the weekend, where I only got about 6 during the SpamSentinel trial. Content filters are such a pain in the a**!!! "

Chris is doing excellent with his service at Maysoft. I have been working with Chris I believe since he started with Maysoft for our SpamSentinel needs and he has went above and beyond the call of duty to insure that our SpamSentinel is working correctly whenever we encounter problems. Please consider Chris Rich a keeper at Maysoft.

Thank You...

How do i like it???? Oh my god it's a god send! My mailbox has been in use since '97 long before the days of the really nasty spammers and well before anyone knew it was best to keep your email address to yourself.

As a result my email has been around the block and then some, seems like spammer has it. I left for my honeymoon two weeks ago, in one weeks time I had nearly a 1000 emails 95% of which were spam of course. I get so tired of weeding through them to find my real mail.

Your product is working flawlessly the idea is brilliant and I just can't say enough about it. You've totally changed my mornings!!! Now i just run SpanSentinel and get to reading my actual emails instead of taking 5 to 10 mins every morning to sift through the spam, spelled C-R-A-P.

So I will be recommending this install to everyone at my company and we may even just get the server version. Keep up the outstanding work!!!

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually I have been testing out your database on my Notes client and have found that it catches everything my relay server (linux) does not.

It has even correctly identified items I THOUGHT were spam but when I looked closer were actually from sources I had contacted so I am pleased it is working so well.

I would be interested in the server version rather than the client version which I assume would work the same way on MAIL.BOX.

- Gary F.

Thank-you for the Email. To answer your questions Yes it installed fine, took me about 10 minutes. So far I'm really impressed with SpamSentinel.

It's much easier to maintain then the previous solution we implemented. There is no list of Keywords to update (Big bonus for me), have the ability to black list who we like on top of what's in the SpamSentinel database. It seems to be catching most of the Spam we get, but it's hard to tell. I'm relying on the users to forward any Spam that reaches their in-box that is missed by SpamSentinel.

So far on average there is about 18 Spam's caught per day with no releasing of legitimate email!

I guess you can tell my first impressions are really good.

- Clayton F. Canada

All's well and I love this thing so much I'm hoping I can shove it through channels fast enough that my demo doesn't expire.

- KT

Thanks to Chris Rich, I finally got it working right on Wednesday, last week. That being the case, can I go a week longer on trial--it seems to be running great now, and my intent is to purchase it, assuming no unanticipated perturbations.

-Bob F.

Excellent product.

Currently we have no problem with false positives and we have had a lot of Sobig.F's which have been stripped out by our anti-virus software (Symantec NAV corporate 7.5).

The (effectively junk) emails that are left after this then end up in the SpamSentinel quarantine, which is how it should be IMO.

- Brian N. Luxembourg

I wanted to take a few minutes this morning and write you a note on the Support that we have received from Chris Rich. Clint H. and myself have spent many hours in the past working together on Spam issues with yourself and others, and want you to know that the support we have received from Chris over the last 2 weeks has been execellent.

We had a discussion with him on a variety of issues that was very productive indeed. We had been working with IBM on a problem with having 50,000 messages in a mail box and Chris had the problem isolated and resolved in 20 minutes. He is a great resource for your organization and we enjoy working with him.

You will always be King Frank, but in our eyes he is moving closer and closer to the King!

We look forward to working with Chris in the future!

I am evaluating SpamSentinel for myself and I really like it so far. I have only been using it for a about two days, but it seems to be doing a good job.

I have been able to demonstrate the effectiveness of it for two of our mailadmin people and I think they were impressed.

I hope I can get them to implement this for us but only time will tell.

- Bill K

I have installed SpamSentinel, it is very easy to install and re-install and to configure, so I am pleased with that.

But: My opinion is that spam should be blocked already on the smtp server level, not at users mailbox, so let see what I get with the server version.
