Comments from the Editor

... And the country spamming the most is....

Spam is an issue we all deal with. On InternetNews today, they reported that the United States is at the top of the list for countries providing a throughway for spam. While the US is at the top of the list for countries, do you know what continent is leading in the area of spam?

Here is a hint. While the US may be the leading country, North America is third in continent rankings. That leaves six others, although you can safely rule out Antarctica!

If you guessed Europe, then you are not correct either. If you want to know the leading country, you can check out the article on InternetNews at:


... New betas from Microsoft...

On a more relevant note, Microsoft has released betas of Exchange Server 2007 and Forefront Security for Exchange Server. You can find beta 2 of Exchange Server 2007 at:


The Forefront Security for Exchange Server beta can be found at:


Final release of these products is planned for late this year or early 2007.

Until next week...
