Leading Email Infrastructure Provider to Address the Role of Mail Transfer Agents in CAN-SPAM Compliance

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 24, 2005 -- Port25 Solutions, Inc., a leading commercial email infrastructure company, announced today that SVP of marketing and strategy Bill Karpovich will address the role of email infrastructure in complying with CAN-SPAM at the INBOX West 2005.

Passed in 2003, CAN-SPAM legislation formalizes policies that legitimate senders must follow in order to legally use email to communicate with prospects and existing customers. Legitimate senders struggle today to comply with the various policies and procedures specified by CAN-SPAM.

Port25 provides top brands and leading email service providers with technology solutions that make it easy to effectively use email for prospect and customer communications. PowerMTA -- Port25's flagship product -- was the first commercial mail transfer agent (MTA) to support DomainKeys and Sender ID email authentication specifications. PowerMTA also provides several advanced features that help legitimate senders comply with the various anti-spam policies including CAN-SPAM.

Port25 Solutions joins a panel of industry leaders to discuss the role of the MTA (message transfer agent) in helping senders comply and keep up with ongoing modifications to the CAN-SPAM legislation.

The panel, titled "MTA Managers! How Does CAN-SPAM Affect You?" includes:

--  Joshua Baer, CEO, UnsubCentral (Moderator)
--  Scott Chasin, chief technology officer, MX Logic, Inc.
--  Richi Jennings, lead analyst, spam practice, Ferris Research, Inc.
--  Bill Karpovich, senior vice president of marketing, Port25 Solutions
--  Dave Lewis, vice president of market development, StrongMail Systems
