No Halt by U.S. Government to Sending WikiLeaks Documents by Email, According to SMTP, Inc.

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - December 11, 2010) - SMTP, Inc., (www.smtp.com) the largest independent provider of high-volume outbound email delivery services for large permission-based marketing campaigns, today announced that it has not been contacted by any U.S. government agency to censor or stop the direct emailing of State Department cables by WikiLeaks. As the primary means for sending data, email is a highly likely channel for controlling the distribution of hundreds of thousands of classified and secret U.S. State department documents associated with the controversial WikiLeaks.

Because of SMTP's supplier role in sending millions of emails on behalf of its customers, the company periodically receives notices from government agencies to take a particular action for a specific customer in which SMTP is obligated to comply by law.

"The proper process for us to comply with any government request is to receive a legal document specifying a court ordered action, such as a warrant," said Semyon Dukach, CEO of SMTP. "In the case of WikiLeaks, no such notices have been received by SMTP, Inc."
