CMS Announces Upgrades and Additions to their BL-Monitor™ Product

February 17, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
SOUTHFIELD, MI — Computer Mail Services, Inc. (CMS), an expert in email monitoring and security, announces two new versions of their BL-Monitor product family, enhancing the free BL-Monitor software and releasing BL-Monitor PRO, a new edition that gives email administrators greater control over their DNS Blacklist choices and operations.

New features common to both BL-Monitor and BL-Monitor PRO editions include the ability to monitor local mail servers for accidental blacklisting and to detect various situations, such as DNSBL servers blacklisting the entire Internet.

“We are excited about giving companies the ability to watch their local mail servers for accidental blacklisting", said Lih-Tah Wong, President of CMS. "Others charge $50 or more annually for this service alone and here we've included it in all BL-Monitor editions".

Unique to BL-Monitor PRO are its "Best Combination" and "IP Overlap" reports. Using "Best Combination" analysis, BL-Monitor PRO determines which combinations of DNSBL servers offer the most effective blacklist filtering. The "IP Overlap" feature details all IP addresses common between any pair of DNSBL servers. With these reports administrators precisely identify the best and optimal number of DNSBL servers for their location, saving computer and network resources.

BL-Monitor PRO extends the capabilities of the free BL-Monitor by adding the option to email reports and alerts, permitting unattended operation. PRO edition also analyzes more IP addresses and checks up to 5 local email servers for accidental blacklisting.

The free edition of BL-Monitor and BL-Monitor PRO can be downloaded immediately from the CMS BL-Monitor Home Page. BL-Monitor PRO costs $49.95 after an introductory $50 discount off the $99.95 retail price.
