Visualware Introduces Email Tracking Software to Help Identify the True Source of Emails

eMailTrackerProTM Analyzes Email Headers, Identifies Sender's Geographical Region

TURLOCK, CALIF -- MARCH 4, 2002 -- Visualware Inc. today announced the release of eMailTrackerPro, software designed to assist in detecting the true origin of emails, helping users in the identification and reporting of spammers and verification of the email source for security purposes.

eMailTrackerPro analyzes email header information to provide the IP address of the machine that sent the email, along with other clues to its origin, such as the machine name, time zone and geographical region. Many spammers employ the technique of "misdirection" to disguise their identities and locations. eMailTrackerPro helps uncover misdirection to expose the true origin of the email.

"As the use of email continues to grow exponentially, tools to help users validate the email source have become essential," said Julian Palmer, Visualware's chief marketing officer. "eMailTrackerPro provides a quick and easy-to-use means to help identify the real sender."

A plug-in for Microsoft Outlook adds a button to the Outlook toolbar for one-click email tracking. For other email programs, header information may be easily pasted into eMailTrackerPro for quick analysis. A built-in location database tracks emails to a country or region of the world and shows the location on a global map. eMailTrackerPro also provides hyperlink integration with VisualRoute, Visualware's popular graphical traceroute product, to provide more detailed geographic traces and further pinpoint the source of the email.

Pricing for eMailTrackerPro starts at $29.95. Free 15-day trial versions of the product may be downloaded from
