Anti-Spam software now freeware

With new PC viruses proliferating around the world via e-mail, users are becoming more concerned about the risks that unsolicited e-mail may bring.

Following the discovery of the Worm.ExploreZip virus last week, software developer GFI has released a freeware version of its application Mail essentials for Exchange/SMTP, which lets users protect their e-mail system from Spam.

According to GFI, the anti-Spam feature of Mail essentials scans e-mail before it reaches the mail server, detecting and deleting any e-mail that contains messages associated with viruses.

GFI is providing the anti-Spam feature of Mail essentials as freeware - offering unlimited and fully functional use. The program is available as a download within the Mail essentials 60-day trial version, which can be found at After 60 days, Mail essentials will be disabled while its anti-Spam feature will remain working.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
