MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 22, 2007 -- Habeas, Inc. (, the company that certifies the reputations of legitimate email senders, today announced the winners of its inaugural Habeas Sender Awards. Determined by a distinguished panel of Habeas executives, board members and partners, the awards recognize commercial email senders for their consummate efforts in establishing email trust with recipients, improving email deliverability and performance, supporting email best practices, and leveraging Habeas solutions as part of a successful email strategy.

Ohio Distinctive Software, a software development and marketing company, receives Habeas' top customer award -- the Golden INBOX Award -- exemplifying the best overall use of email best practices to achieve a positive email reputation and improve deliverability. The company's ability to create and maintain positive relationships with ISPs, to substantially increase delivery rates, and to implement Habeas' Sender Solutions have helped it to become an exemplary email sender.

"We are extremely honored to receive Habeas' highest award recognizing our efforts in developing the best email apparatus possible," said Tim Clark, Vice President of Ohio Distinctive Software. "Email delivery requires strong partnerships to maintain positive relationships with ISPs and improve email delivery to customers. We are pleased that our work with Habeas has resulted in a very high standard of excellence in getting email to our customers."

The Silver Sender Award, highlighting the organization that has improved its email reputation by implementing email best practices over the last 3-6 months, was presented to Eagle Publishing.
