antispam Spam does not bring us joy—ridding Gmail of 100 million more spam messages with TensorFlow

1.5 billion people use Gmail every month, and 5 million paying businesses use Gmail in the workplace as a part of G Suite.

discussion Marketoonist: Marketing Automation

Brands are increasingly adopting marketing automation, with email marketing as the most common application.

stats How has GDPR affected Spam?

The real answer is that it is far too early to tell. Various articles currently state that "nothing has happened" as a result of GDPR or "spam has fallen slightly"; however, the true effects of GDPR providing anonymity to domain owners will take a long time to play out.

antispam Kurz erklärt: Brand Indicators for Message Identification

Phishing beschäftigt seit Jahren die IT-Branche und die Anwender. Ein Verfahren namens BIMI soll die Lage verbessern, indem authentifizierte Nachrichten ein verifiziertes Logo erhalten.
