Dialtone Internet Helps Prevent Spam E-Mail by
Providing Server Space for OsiruSoft Blocking List

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 27, 2001 – Dialtone Internet Inc., a leading independent provider of dedicated and co-location Web-hosting services, today announced it is donating bandwidth and memory on its servers for the OsiruSoft Spam Stopper service to block Unsolicited Commercial E-mails (UCE) commonly known as Spam.

To accommodate for the fast-growing use of the service worldwide, Dialtone has agreed to donate and maintain the server space for a secondary DNS service for the OsiruSoft blocking list, which is continuously updated. The list of Web sites and IP addresses that distribute Spam e-mails allows sites and hubs to automatically block mail from domains whose IP numbers are on the list.

“We’re pleased to donate the server space to help prevent Spam e-mails that many people find annoying and inappropriate,” said Alvaro Albarracin, chief executive officer of Dialtone Internet. “We’re serving as a responsible ‘Net citizen’ by making it easier for system administrators around the globe to access and use the blocking service.”

Since its inception in 1998, Dialtone Internet has worked to prevent Spam e-mails. It was one of the first dedicated hosting providers to implement a relaying system on its servers to prevent Spam e-mails while allowing customers to send and receive mail.
