* **We are very pleased to announce that a major update for our
BarricadeMX Plus application has just been released. BarricadeMX Plus is
used primarily by ISPs and larger sites that accept mail for multiple
domains and need to delegate the configuration of email processing and
anti-spam filtering to multiple domain administrators and end users.**
This upgrade replaces our existing level one SMTP filter (smtpf) which
was written in multi-threaded C, with a new filter based on Haraka
<http://haraka.github.com/>. The details of this upgrade can be found
Haraka is a relatively new open source SMTP server written in Node.js,
run-time engine used in Google Chrome. In recent benchmarking, a single
Node.js server gracefully handled over 1,000,000 concurrent HTTP
connections thanks to it's event-driven nature.
BarricadeMX Plus implements the new Haraka anti-spam filter as the SMTP
application which accepts or rejects incoming email in front of a web
based version of MailScanner. Typically well over 50% (usually more like
90-95%) of incoming messages are very efficiently rejected during the
initial SMTP session substantially increasing span detection accuracy
and ***considerably *reducing the number of messages that need to be
processed by MailScanner .
These rejected messages are immediately returned to the sender with and
Non-Delivery Receipt containing a link that allows valid senders to
white list their address and resend the email in the unlikely event the
rejection was a false-positive.

information, online demos or on-site demo/test installations.
