I'd certainly like to hear Blue Mountain respond to this statement, or to
have Microsoft's claim independently verified. This should not be a
matter of speculation and conjecture -- either it's true or it's not.
None of the articles or statements I've seen so far even attempt to
address the relevant technical questions, in particular the criteria used
by Microsoft to filter spam. This is hardly a trivial matter, given the
immense censorship powers placed in the hands of filter designers.
Consumers ought to have this information made available to them before
they elect to use a spam filter, whether it's Microsoft's or someone
else's. The stakes are even higher given that the spam filter is
"integrated" into IE, which is in turn "integrated" into Windows.
