Habeas and GetActive Partner to Improve Email Deliverability for Non-Profit Organizations

Partnership Helps GetActive's More Than 750 Non-Profit Clients Protect Their Email Reputations

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 1, 2006 -- Habeas Inc. (www.habeas.com), the company that certifies the reputations of legitimate email senders, today announced that it has partnered with email service provider GetActive Software to help non-profit organizations improve email deliverability. As a result of this partnership, GetActive's more than 750 eligible non-profit clients will be added to the Habeas SafeList, the Internet's premier whitelisting service.

"We want our supporters to know they can trust the email we send, so we welcome certification of our email practices," said Raymond C. Offenheiser, President of Oxfam America, a GetActive client. "More and more barriers are being raised to the delivery of legitimate email, so it is reassuring to know that both GetActive and Habeas are committed to helping non-profit organizations like ourselves establish a positive email reputation and reach our supporters. Getting our emails into the inbox is critical to our success."

GetActive is the first email service provider serving the non-profit sector to partner with Habeas and offer Safelisting to its clients free of charge. Habeas-certified senders of email experience improved delivery rates over non-certified senders because the Habeas Safelist is routinely checked by the world's largest email receivers. If a sender's IP address is included on the Habeas Safelist, the sender's message is quickly identified as legitimate email and avoids being rejected or routed to spam folders. The Habeas Safelist is used by leading ISPs and is also checked by numerous corporate and non-profit email domains.

"Email deliverability is critical to the success of our clients' online outreach efforts," said Bill Pease, Chief Technology Officer for GetActive. "Over 300,000 email servers check the Habeas Safelist and then provide delivery benefits to certified senders. Through our partnership with Habeas, we are able to ensure that non-profits complying with email best practices do not encounter delivery barriers."

"By partnering with companies such as GetActive, we are extending our reach among non-profit organizations and helping them deliver on the importance of a positive email reputation," said Habeas CEO Des Cahill. "Not only are we helping legitimate senders improve delivery rates, but we are also offering best-practice recommendations to the organizations that need to adjust their email delivery processes."
