MailFrontier built Matador based on two basic principles: first, each user has their own personal definition of spam, and second, only a multi-pronged solution can hope to eliminate unwanted email. Pavni Diwanji, CEO and cofounder of MailFrontier said: "We believe that the fight against spam will be won by making the venture unprofitable for spammers by blocking the delivery of junk email to in-boxes. With spam becoming increasingly targeted and personal, the consequences of losing this battle could ruin email as a viable means of communication."
Matador 2.0, a downloadable desktop client, is now available for users of Microsoft Outlook (2000 and 2002) running on Windows 98, ME, 2000 and XP and users of Outlook Express (5.0/5.5/6.0), Hotmail, MSN, and IMAP, for a price of $29.95.
