Is your personal or ministry email the target of spam, phishing, or fake appeals? I’ve just heard about MERCMAIL’s Email Validation Service (EVS Mail), which reportedly protects you from all of it, and more. I’m looking forward to someone trying it out. EVS Mail uses simple yes/no tests and rejects over 99% (current stat appears on MERCMAIL’s homepage) of spammer connections before the message is even sent! The most you will pay is $0.14/day (invoiced yearly), and there are volume discounts starting with just 10 accounts, for 20% off. Visit
