Arlington, VA (PRWEB) November 17, 2006 — Hendrickson Software Components (hsc) announced today the release of SidewinderX, an automated, AppleScript-able spam tracing and reporting software tool for Apple Mail. The Mac OS X Universal Binary is built on the company’s popular Sidewinder Rating Engine, and designed to work with Apple Mail to trace and report spam e-mail, and “spamvertized” links embedded in e-mail messages. It will also allow the user to “categorize” spam by content, and send a different abuse complaint, and use a different CC list for abuse complaints from each category. Versions for other email clients will follow on very soon, as well as versions for Windows, Windows email clients, Linux and Linux email clients.

“SidewinderX is the ideal solution for spam-weary customers. Because it automatically traces the source of the spam and the embedded spamvertized and phishing links, and then reports the offenders to their ISPs.
