  • Patent number: 10055213
    Abstract: Disclosed is a novel system and method for initiating trial use of a software application. One or more trial software icons are displayed on a messaging window of a graphical users interface on a display coupled to a computing device. Each trial software icon represents a trial software application, such as a separate and distinct trial software application, that is not currently installed on the computing device. Moving an object representing a file attachment, such as through drag-and-drop action, to one of the trial software icons automatically installs the trial software application on the computing device. Also the trial software application is launched automatically to open the file attachment.

  • Patent number: 7882192
    Abstract: A method for detecting undesirable emails combines input from two or more spam classifiers to provide improved classification effectiveness and robustness. The method includes obtaining a score from each of a plurality of constituent spam classifiers by applying them to a given input email. The method further includes obtaining a combined spam score from a combined spam classifier that takes as input the plurality of constituent spam classifier scores, the combined spam classifier being computed automatically in accordance with a specified false-positive vs. false-negative tradeoff. The method further includes identifying the given input email as an undesirable email if the combined spam score indicates that the input e-mail is undesirable.
