Internet Light and Power Beta Testing Innovative New Anti-Spam Technology

Toronto, Ontario-February 5, 2003- Internet Light and Power Inc, a premier Internet Service Provider, announced today they have begun beta testing their new online anti-spam technology. The new anti-spam technology, iPermitMail™, will be officially launched sometime in early March.

“iPermitMail™ will save you time and money, lower your security risks, and block offensive materials from ever reaching your inbox. We are very excited about this new anti-spam system and the impact it will have on email users worldwide”, states Tristan Goguen, President of Internet Light and Power.

This new patent-pending anti-spam technology provides several levels of protection from unauthorized bulk email (“spam”). By combining the power of a white list, which ensures that important clients and other contacts will not be blocked, with iPermitMail's patent-pending technology, users now have complete control over their inbox. Current statistics gathered from Internet Light and Power show iPermitMail is successfully blocking 98% of the spam mail being sent to beta testers.

“We looked at the solutions available today and found they lacked the sophistication needed to successfully stop spammers. Our goal was to find an easy and effective way for consumers to improve their email experience and eliminate a growing problem. iPermitMail™ puts the control in the hands of the user, where it should be”, exclaims Goguen.

Internet Light and Power serves a broad client base in a variety of sectors, including entertainment and media, manufacturing and engineering, retail, financial services and arts and education.
