Award-winning anti-spam platform gives system administrators the tools they love to keep email
free of spam by adding native support for IPv6, improved DNS Blocklist technology and support
for massively-scalable Bayesian filtering using the Redis backend
Forest Hill, MD –11 February 2014– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer
developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 170 Open Source projects and initiatives,
today announced a "Valentine's Day gift to the Internet" with the release of Apache™ SpamAssassin™
3.4.0, the award winning and highly extensible email filtering program and API.
Named by eWeek as one of the 11 Apache Technologies that have "changed computing in the last
10 years," SpamAssassin is deployed by hundreds of thousands of organizations worldwide who
hate spam almost as much as Monty Python.
By providing a comprehensive set of features and support for email classification including
text-based patterns, Bayesian filtering, DNS Blocklists, checksum filters, sender authentication
and automated rule channel updates, SpamAssassin takes a multi-step/tiered approach to classifying
email to improve accuracy and decrease the chance of legitimate emails being incorrectly identified
The project's latest release marks a major milestone more than two years in the making and
celebrates a decade with the ASF. "With the release of SpamAssassin 3.4.0, the project continues
battling the ever evolving techniques used by spammers with an enterprise-grade release,"
said Apache SpamAssassin Vice President Kevin A. McGrail. "The number one feature of SpamAssassin
is the proven classification scoring framework that allows system administrators to use new
ideas to improve email classification, thereby making SpamAssassin timeless."
Apache SpamAssassin is widely deployed at enterprise organizations around the globe, including
national, regional and local ISPs, email service providers, Fortune Global 500 companies as
well as small and medium-sized businesses, all levels of the education sector, governments,
and private individuals.
"SpamAssassin is the centerpiece of our anti spam solution at the ASF," said Joseph Schaefer,
Senior System Administrator at the Apache Software Foundation. "We receive roughly half a
million connections a day, directed primarily at our mailing lists, and manage to remain almost
entirely spam free - thanks SpamAssassin!"
The SpamAssassin project provides daily rule updates to fight spam with the project serving
over 1 million unique servers with rule updates in just the first month of 2014.
SpamAssassin has also been the basis for several commercial products and is in use at the
core of many commercial offerings of premier email and spam filtering firms including cPanel,
the most popular web hosting control panel. cPanel puts SpamAssassin at the fingertips of
tens of thousands of system administrators and millions of end-users giving them "the best
solution to obliterate unsolicited email on your server and stay compliant with well-known
retention standards," said Eric Ellis, Director of Development Operations for cPanel.
"Be Our Valentine"
Apache SpamAssassin reflects intensive support from the anti-spam community including development,
testing, and research from scores of knowledgeable users to combat spammers. This release
is dedicated to the entire community and their love of fighting spam.
