Monday, November 17, 2003 - Microsoft to Wage Attack on Spam With New Filter - Microsoft to Wage Attack on Spam With New Filter: "In his annual opening address at the Comdex computer industry exposition here, Microsoft Chairman and founder Bill Gates was expected to showcase new software that filters out spam -- unsolicited commercial e-mail -- before it can flood corporate networks. Dubbed SmartScreen, the software is designed to more thoroughly block unwanted e-mail messages than technology now in Microsoft products, such as its Outlook e-mail program.
The spam announcement is part of a broader message that Mr. Gates and other company officials are delivering to customers and investors. The theme: that Microsoft can use its huge research and development budget to power through the difficult times that the computer industry faces."
