The MailCleaner anti-spam filter is our main contribution to the effort to diminish greenhouse gases. A study by ICF International has revealed that spam generates 0.3g of carbon dioxide per message, much of which is released when producing the electricity used by the recipient’s workstation. Retaining spam upstream in a filter like MailCleaner allows us to save that energy. Taking into account the number of MailCleaner customers worldwide, this represents a savings of tons of carbon dioxide each day!
