  1. The MailUtl3 identifies wether the user send an e-mail from computer directory without relay the ISP's mail server.
  2. The MailUtl3 identifies it by using Selective SMTP Rejection (S25R) System, Hideo Asami's idea.

  4. Since most of e-mails transmitted from end user's subscriber line, not relayed ISP's mail server, are spams, the MailUtl3 is one of spam filter program.
  5. The MailUtl3 is not a content filtering program. It does not check the context of e-mails.

Good points

  1. Learning less. However, you must maintain the symmetry function in your mail program. It would be a white list.

Bad points

  1. Since MailUtl3 runs DNS queries, it increases the network traffice in the Internet and loads of DNS servers.
  2. It takes time while MailUtl3 is running DNS queries. You do not mention it if you receive e-mails from your mail server at fixed interval such as every ten minutes. However, when you returned to your home from your office, you would be anxious the waiting time caused by DNS queries. It would be absolute end when the amount of e-mails in the mail server exeeds three hundred.
