Windows Protected Your PC?

Category : News

When installing any of our updated software you may see the following warning:-

Ironically this is because we’ve made our software MORE secure. Since early 2019 we have started code signing all of our programs. The warning appears because Microsoft want to encourage developers into buying “extra trust” (Yes we can pay extra to have this warning removed immediately). We believe that trust is earned, not bought. By code signing our programs we are ensuring that what you download is what we have intended for you to download. IF any of our programs do anything nasty in the background then we can’t blame anybody else, we SMTP Software Ltd are 100% responsible. Simply put it just doesn’t, we have zero interest in writing malicious code. All our programs are Virus scanned before uploading and we only write code to do what we intend, that is why we are happy to code sign all our software. We are a registered company and have responsibilities.

In order to install our software you will need to click on the “More Info” text which will confirm SMTP Software Ltd as the publisher, if this says anything else please don’t run the installer and report it to us (support@smtpsoftware.com) If it does confirm the publisher as SMTP Software Ltd you are safe to click on the Run Anyway button. Again by code signing our programs you can be sure that what you have downloaded is what we intended, it will have been virus scanned and we ensure 100% that none of our programs contain anything malicious.

By going through this process and by our software only doing what it is supposed to do you are helping us build the trusted status in an organic way. If you have any questions about this please feel free to contact us at support@smtpsoftware.com
