NTT DoCoMo announces latest anti-spam measure
Posted on 6-Nov-2003 07:33 | Tags Filed under: News



Incredible, but spammers even use fast mobile phone connections to send unsolicited e-mail. NTT DoCoMo is working on this, by restricting the number of messages users can send daily.

NTT DoCoMo and its eight regional subsidiaries announced today that i-mode users will be able to automatically reject e-mails from any i-mode handset that sends 200 or more e-mails per day beginning 8th January 2004.

DoCoMo established a limit of 1,000 e-mails per i-mode handset to help combat spamming in October. Certain spammers have continued to abuse the system, however, by restricting their daily quota of emails to this limit. The new measure is targeted directly at these spammers.

The e-mail-blocking feature will be turned on as the default setting for i-mode handsets. Users can turn off the feature at the "iMenu" official i-mode portal site, and there will be no packet transmission charge for changing the setting.

DoCoMo is committed to protecting the convenience and usefulness of its mobile internet services by aggressively pursing spammers. Among other countermeasures, DoCoMo now reserves the right to suspend or even rescind all handset contracts registered to any company identified as a spammer. As of 28th October, DoCoMo had suspended 1,875 contracts held by such companies.

In line with official requirements, DoCoMo notified the Ministry of Public Management, Home Affairs, Post and Telecommunications of the service.
