The 2006 Anti-Spam Annual Meeting and International Anti-Spam Summit, hosted by Internet Society of China and co-organized by ISC Anti-Spam Work Commission and ISC Anti-Spam Center, has concluded at the Poly Plaza in Beijing.
With the theme "Regulating Management, Cooperation Exchanges and Innovative Development", the meeting attracted more than 400 government officials, anti-spam experts and famous scholars from both domestic and international anti-spam organizations.
As the largest and the highest standard cooperation platform, the Anti-Spam Annual Meeting and International Anti-spam Summit attracted wide attention from the industry. During the meeting, ISC published the third anti-spam survey report and the trend on anti-spam efforts during the year. And representatives from transnational corporations and international organizations such as Microsoft (MSFT), AOL, APCAUCE, Spamhaus and KISA introduced their own experiences in preventing and fighting against spam.
Another highlight of the meeting was the Green Email Box award ceremony during which 19 email services of 14 firms including Tom.com were accredited as Green Email Boxes because they offered safe, spam-free email to users.
The latest anti-spam survey shows the spam that Chinese users received from June to October declined from 61.99% to 59.49%. And a typical Chinese user received an average of 18.96 spams each week; the regular email they received and sent was basically balanced (12.94: 11.45).
The drop of spam sending is said to be a direct result of Ministry of Information Industry's efforts, particularly with the promulgation of the Internet Email Service Management Measure.
