Atlantic.Net Launches SpamScope to Help Eliminate Junk E-mail

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (11/21/02) – Atlantic.Net (, one of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies and Florida’s largest privately held Internet service provider, today announced the launch of SpamScope, a powerful tool that filters out unwanted messages such as advertisements, hoaxes and pornography. The new feature is available exclusively to Atlantic.Net subscribers at no additional charge. Members can activate SpamScope or learn more about the tool by visiting

“SpamScope is a spammer’s worst nightmare,” said Marty Puranik, president and CEO of Atlantic.Net. “Now, Atlantic.Net members don’t have to waste time looking through junk e-mails to find the messages they really want to read. Plus, parents will appreciate that SpamScope filters out content that may be offensive or inappropriate for children.”

Unlike spam-fighting tools offered by other national Internet service providers, Atlantic.Net’s SpamScope empowers subscribers to customize the way the tool works for them. Using a simple Web-based interface, Atlantic.Net members can login and access SpamScope’s many features: • Users can choose from a range of 20 different levels of protection to adjust SpamScope’s filtering strength to meet their needs. • Atlantic.Net members decide what happens to spam. They can send it to their inbox, route it to a separate folder to view later or destroy it forever. • SpamScope users can opt to receive a “Possible Spam” warning in the subject line of a junk e-mail. • When used along with Atlantic.Net Webmail, SpamScope helps members block computer viruses from unknown contacts. • With SpamScope, Atlantic.Net subscribers can blacklist spammers or ensure that messages from friends and family always get through.

Atlantic.Net dial-up Internet service is available in more than 1,100 cities across the nation and in Canada. Atlantic.Net’s “Unlimited” account is just $19.95 per month and features 24/7 toll-free technical support, 10 e-mail accounts, personal Web space, a monthly newsletter and a portal.
