In IT Week’s opinion, GFI’s anti-spam, anti-phishing and email management solution is a solid product that can significantly cut down on spam email messages. “If your company is looking for an effective method to distinctly cut down on spam in an effective manner, then you’ll want to check out GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP. You can expect the software to block more than 98% of all spam email that attempts to reach corporate users,” IT Week Magazine said in its product review.

Products are chosen for review based on broad criteria, but a product is given an Editor's Choice Award only when they feel it provides an excellent solution and one which they want to recommend to their readers. The publication, now in its third year, is delivered electronically in digital format to over 100,000 qualified subscribers every Monday.

The magazine said the product is quite easy to install and highlighted the benefit that it can be installed on Microsoft’s Exchange or any other SMTP server.
