About Me


the source of ASSP
Welcome to my homepage

My name is Thomas Eckardt. I'm located in the south-east of Germany near Leipzig and Dresden.
I was born in 1964. I'm married since 1987 and I have three adult children.
During leisure time, I like to drive my motorbike and if I have some more free time, I develope the anti spam solution ASSP (since 2007).
( what a joke - an IT guy with free time         )

I'm a freelancer, working as IT project manager, IT consultant and technican. I got my first professional IT skills in 1983.

You want to know what ASSP is and how it works?

ASSP stands for:

Anti-Spam-SMTP-Proxy (the common name)
Auxiliary Support & Service Proxy for SMTP

The first term and the software was founded by John Hanna in 2003. This single-threaded SOHO version (ASSP V1) was actively developed until the end of 2014.
The second term and software was founded by Fritz Borgstedt (+2014) and me in 2007. This multi-threaded server version of ASSP is still maintained and developed by me (ASSP V2).

The Anti-Spam-SMTP-Proxy (ASSP) Server project aims to create an open source platform-independent SMTP Proxy server which implements auto-whitelists, self learning Bayesian and Hidden-Markov-Model, Greylisting, DNSBL, DNSWL, URIBL, SPF, SRS, Backscatter, Virus scanning, DKIM, attachment blocking, Senderbase and multiple other filter methods.
ASSP is written in Perl and is able to run on nearly any platform, where a Perl 5.12 or higher is available.
