I'm so SAD about the loss of this truly amazing service! After December of this year, Cloudmark Desktop One will be gone.

We are sad to announce that Cloudmark DesktopOne is being discontinued and that the end of life wind down period has begun. With the increased use of mobile devices, the number of people running DesktopOne has tailed off over time as people migrated from desktop-based email clients to web-based and mobile-based email clients... ...Unfortunately, this experiment has not altered the rate of user decline. Although Cloudmark DesktopOne has been a helpful product for many users around the world, we are unfortunately no longer able to maintain the product and it will stop functioning after December 1, 2017.

This is actually pretty devastating for our non-profit festival office. We have people like me who receive many thousands of SPAM emails a day. But it was Cloudmark Desktop One that was our HERO! It caught almost 100% of these and removed them from our Inboxs -- saving us hours and hours of time trying to manage them on our own. After December, we'll be back to doing exactly that again... (sigh)

The link that is shared in the 'goodbye' article is WORTHLESS. I haven't found a single service ANYWHERE that is like Cloudmark Desktop One! We've been using it for free, but would gladly have subscribed (had it been an option) in order to keep it.

Well, we now have to find another option, obviously. But I'm very disappointed. More than I can say. I wish I could express it to the Cloudmark people, but that's not even possible. (sigh)

I think google does a pretty good job of filtering out spam. I have used it since it;s inception and always been happy with it. I don't know anything about their commercial offerings, however.
