XMission started these proceedings in an effort to reduce the volume of unfilterable, junk email that impacts the XMission network and clogs customer inboxes.
"In addition to our exhaustive technical resources fighting unsolicited email, I am excited to engage this abuse with legal as well,” said XMission president and founder, Pete Ashdown.
The desired outcomes of XMission’s strategy include: Reduce unsolicited email to customer inboxes; Create a financial impact on spammers, thus reducing the amount of unsolicited email on the Internet; Impact case law and help establish further protections for everyone.
