After a year of campaigning against fraudulent use of the Juno domain name in unsolicited commercial email, Juno Online Services said it has seen a 35 percent reduction in complaints regarding unsolicited email that forges its domain name.

The ad-backed email and ISP company, which provides online services to more than 6.3 million subscribers, also announced a 65 percent reduction in the number of Juno accounts being improperly used as “drop boxes” in connection with bulk email solicitations.

“Juno has long been an important part of the Internet community’s fight against spam,” said Ray Everett-Church, co-founder of the Coalition Against Unsolicited Commercial E-mail. “Juno’s efforts will be appreciated by millions of Internet users worldwide.”

Juno launched a two-pronged offensive against spam in late 1997, using both technical and legal resources to prevent spammers from using either the Juno system or the Juno name in their activities.

America Online also has been active in anti-spam efforts, and just this week said it won three lawsuits and filed nine more against various spammers.

“Over the past year, we have made it very clear to the Internet community that Juno will not tolerate spam,” said Richard Buchband, Juno’s senior vice president and general counsel. “To date, we’ve brought legal action against a number of notorious spammers, and the results we have achieved are gratifying.” Buchband said he expects to announce several additional settlements from defendants in the near future.
