Turn emails into more shareable documents and convert them!

To keep e-mail as your business tool, you need a way to clear the incoming mail from spam quickly and effectively. Also, this method must be safe for important business messages. Antispam Scanner brings you clear and simple way to remove email messages directly from your email server, before it is downloaded into your computer.

The software Antispam Scanner was developed with these requirements taken into account.

Quickness. It is achieved because its interface is as visual and easy as possible. There is no need to select any checkboxes or find your way in a chaos of colored stripes. Messages from different categories are stored in different locations, which makes sorting them much quicker since your attention is not distracted by messages from other categories. This is the main peculiarity of the program. Besides, messages are processed quickly because only message headers are received, as well as due to the built-in system of self-teaching and the initial set of rules, which makes it
possible to roughly presort messages right away.

Effectiveness. You will delete all obvious spam without downloading it to your computer and will get a pure flow of correspondence. The interface of the program ensures that you view and sort message headers in the most comfortable way that you will not find in any mail client because they have
a different purpose.

Security. You control the process of fighting spam and do not allow an important business message to disappear. Your security is also increased due to the fact that most trash messages and viruses will not get to your computer and will not be able to infect it because they will be deleted right on the server.

#51 I tend to use "hard" filters for Mailwasher - so unless I;

* have the sender in my friends list
* they use a keyword in the subject
* i'm actively expecting an email from them and i'm on the lookout

- I block whole swathes of IP ranges.

Yes, hijacked / proxied / botnet machines are hard to filter unless you start using bayesian filtering, but the "hard" rules I set seem to be 90%-95% effective, given that I (purposely) check against accounts that get 300-400 spam mails per day, and don't have to mark many up by hand for deletion...

My LACNIC filter alone is stopping over 20% of my total spam at the moment, I block any IP ranges starting 189,190,200,201 and one other small subset (148.208-148.223).

It would be impossible to teach a program to block all the spam because so much spam email uses fake sender email addresses and proxy ip addresses.

@#15 Estonijaan:

You are either a moron or an idiot. I think both. This site doesn't track email addresses for its vote tracking. Try it, if you doubt, or just open your eyes and observe that you aren't asked for your email address prior to voting. Many people here use multiple email addresses/screen names to post comments, but they only get one vote, unless they jump through a few highly inconvenient hoops, just to fool some myopic vote. The amount of effort required to fool their unique voting system isn't worth the amount of time, effort, and money your hypothetical scenario requires that the rival software company would have to pay their employee(s). The idea is just inane. Stupid conspiracy theory nut. There's more to life, okay... go outside at least once a week, okay? Normal is long gone for you, but it might help you stay sane.

For POP3-users you could have a free mail forwarding service with spamfilter. All mail send to this forwarding service is filtered and the remaining mail not being spam is forwarded to your mailclient.
No installation. No telling them your password. And no gmail either (being a special case as explained earlier).
The only thing is that you trust them with your mail (this is also the case for all webmail services or even your provider).
Checkout (it is very accurate):

I'll pass on this, because I don't need a spam filter. I use Gmail in my Incredimail client. I never publish my personal email address on the web....only my gmail address. I get tons of spam in gmail, but I never see it unless I go to the web & look at it. While I'm there, I select all and delete forever. My point is it never shows up in my email client, only on the website. Gmail does a very good job of filtering the spam and I've never found an important message that Gmail mistook for spam. I check it every week or so. Also, they don't delete it for a long time, so you have plenty of time to log in and look through the spam pages.

@Mike #37:
Quting your comment:

"..it’s more efficient to do it on your PC where things can happen quicker, without the lag of communicating with the server over the network."

and:
"Antispam Scanner apparently gets just the message header info from your email server, giving you a choice on what to download - the same approach used by services like AOL before broadband became common, it’s the most efficient way to go when you have dial-up access or otherwise limited bandwidth."

Things are just not that simple. Online checking at the server is never (well I don't know all the apps ofcourse) evaluating every byte of the email under research. Only header-information and a part of the regular mail part are involved (also the case with mailwasher; you can even tune the amount of mail-lines to analyse).

Ofcourse local processing is quick but all af the message comes across to your pc. That is much more load than only the header-information and only a limited part of the regular message.
Using broadband connections the downloading will not delay that much anymore like you stated, but analysis is the same, both ways it happens on your pc (only the deleting will be at the server i.e. the processing result will effect the server. In case of complete downloading deleting happens locally too).

So when messages are bigger and using attachments it is more efficient to download just a part of the message and do the analysis locally, even with broadband-connection, though you might not notice it that much.

You must have been under the assumption that the analysis is at the server too, but it isn't in both cases.
Filtering after downloading all of the mail is less efficient.

I still use forte Agent 1.93 newsreader for email, and it's filters support regex, etc.. I download it all and let Agent sort it out. no internal viewers at all so it can't be attacked by html, images, etc.

text-only, the way email ought to be. everything else is just an attachment.

#35 Please . . . there are people reading this who might just think you know what you're talking about.

The "rules" which OE uses are no more than a net curtain full of holes over a window devoid of both lock and glass.

If you seriously think you're protecting yourself / your computer from spam (and harm) by depending on OE, the awakening could be very painful.

As to today's GOTD: visually it's OK, if a little confusing, but even on first encounter it's clear that this is very rudimentary stuff: the app's own learning curve is going to take quite a while and the outcome isn't guaranteed. I'd go along with others in recommending gmail with Thunderbird but am still wary of Google's "overlook" habits.

Here's a tip for individual users who want to know how power users deal with spam. Many corporate networks use services like Brightmail to filter spam automatically. One way they do that is they maintain thousands of shill email accounts and they collect spam in those, and if the same spam then appears in actual user accounts, it is immediately deleted. This works pretty well.

For individuals, I would highly recommend you try Cloudmark (cloudmark.com). It runs 'live' and is available by annual subscription. I started using it about 3 years ago and it is remarkable. One unique aspect of their filtering is a community email approach, where spam can be flagged by its thousands of users. It is highly effective. However, your email client will need to be either Outlook, Outlook Express, or Thunderbird. They have a demo on their site (check under the home/home office section).

The problem with spam (other than clogging the pipes), is it causes you to either lose emails you want because of filtering, or you have to wade thru it deleteing emails manually. Either can happen on your PC or at the mail server... Filtering at the server (whether corp LAN or something like the mail server for Roadrunner) saves you time & trouble, but most people don't even know about it let alone have much control over what gets filtered out. [With Roadrunner for example unless you go online, log in, and set it up otherwise, a good portion of your email will go into the spam folder and be deleted a day or two later, all without your intervention, or knowledge.]

Doing your filtering on-line (at the server) might be helpful to teach the server new rules (essentially what's spam), but if you're wading thru, checking spam folder contents to be safe, it's more efficient to do it on your PC where things can happen quicker, without the lag of communicating with the server over the network. Risk is almost the same: online or off, most risk still comes from clicking on links or attachments; systems & networks most often still get breached because someone just couldn't resist clicking on something they should have known not to - porn often works.

One of the big advantages of filtering at the server is that it can be set up so no one ever sees suspected spam, so no one is ever tempted. [A problem when/if you email your resume, is that if the corp mail server spam filters catch it, no one will ever know it existed.]

Antispam Scanner apparently gets just the message header info from your email server, giving you a choice on what to download - the same approach used by services like AOL before broadband became common, it's the most efficient way to go when you have dial-up access or otherwise limited bandwidth. You might/might not like the way it organizes emails in one window - one example, the CA AV tools they give away with RoadRunner Broadband take the same approach in XP, using Outlook Xpress, as Windows Mail does in Vista: likely spam gets shifted to a separate folder.

Some people feel comfortable storing there mail on there own pc.

GMail is very nice but in the beginning there was no way of deleting mail. After many people insisted, the deleting functionallity was added, but google stores everything without deleting.
http://greasemonkey-user-scripts.arantius.com/gmail+delete+button
The same is true for Gmail, after deleting that mail is only invisible. Perhapse today this is not the case anymore (it is a very old story) but your mail will be for a long time in backups.
It's all a matter of trust, but not everybody wants to only rely on webmail (well I have some too, but I am aware when to use it. No realy big secrets though)

Here is a good and free way to protect you from spam:

This is primitive software, but it can help a newbee learn spam avoidance basics, and to that extent it might be useful.

The best antispam software is no dedicated program/service at all:
* Use gmail addresses (exploiting google's superb source-based and content-analysis filtering), with each address for a specific purpose.
* Forward to Thunderbird (with filtering well-configured, and after a month of bayesian education and whitelist expansion).
* Let Thunderbird drop your incoming spamfree email into folders based upon the gmail address - thus doing your filing for you.

That combination will eliminate 99.99% of all spam, and help keep you organized, without a separate dedicated antispam program.

Best way to reduce spam is use a small, relatively unknown ISP. That cuts out most of it. Thunderbird/Mobility/etc sort it out fairly well when you get it. I use Xterminator which is effective against repetitive spam but with an infinate number of spam addresses and headers it requires constant work. I will ignore the ratings and give this one a try but it seems to me the battle will never be won without blocking mail I want to receive. My next move will probably be to bounce all messages where the sender is not already known to me, sending them amessage about what t0o put in the header to get through. There's a commercial service doing that so it might work.
As for this software, I have nothing to lose by trying it. Neither have you.

#15 email addresses are NOT used for the thumbs ratings, cookies and failing that visitor IP apears to be used. Not impossible to work around but would take a concerted effort to forge hundreds of votes either way. It is more likely the 100 plus negative votes are people not wanting this simplistic spam filter and want screensavers instead!

#17 you need to run your own mail server, and impliment the "low-level" filtering technologies like SMTP caller-id or Sender Policy Framework (SPF) as well as the various trusted realtime blacklists and in addition to that grey-listing. You should also implemimnt the defensive setting like disallow user address verification and limit the max nummber of recipients and maximum number of SMTP errors allowed in each session. Using all or most of the above you will drop most spam altogether. After that you could add a standerd Baysian filter with blacklist on certain words you never use in legit business corespondance and you should end up 99.99% spam free in your inbox.

#9 mail bounces in response to spam just makes matters worse for the other victims that had their domains names/email addresses used by the bulk emailers as the senders of their bombing run. Please don't do it or you will find your legitiamate email become classified as spammy by others spam filters for attacking other victims with backscatter.

The only time bounces might work is if it comes from a "legitimate" company that believes they are in compliance with local laws and provide a genuine reply address and unsubscribe facility. In those cases just ask them to cease and desist.

On the subject of spam and 'business' emails:
I am in the business loan/mortgage business. Virtually any piece of spam (i.e., Nigerian) has the same filter words as my line of work. I can't jeopardize my emails being deleted from the server. Hence, is there an appropriate grade spam filter anyone is aware of for the likes of mortgage professionals??? This is one that won't cut it for such a niche either. Interesting though.

I'm sticking with Mailwasher, although this might be of use to someone.

There doesn't appear to be any mention of support for RegExpr (Regular Expressions) which makes semi-flexible rule making impossible (i.e. blocking a range of IP addresses, rather than a single domain).

If anyone needs a hand with Mailwasher, i've got some filters set up here (they're a little old now, but still usable)

GAOTD RATINGS ARE HIGHLY DOUBTFUL

Over 100 people turned this offer down within two hours after it appeared. I cannot believe that over 100 people have had the opportunity to test the program reliably, as it takes some time to accumlate spam.

This further confirms my impression from other strange rating cases, that the rating at GAOTD is not honest. The 100 raters may be just one person, using a hundred alias email addresses. Most likely, it may be an employee of some software producer who wants to discourage people to look into the offer.

Downloaded and registered with no problem. Problem for me is that it only works with POP3, fine for my Comcast accounts but it doesn't help with Hotmail downloaded to Outlook Express. I had my fingers crossed with this one. The program we use at our company is similar and stops the spam before it ever gets into the network. I have never had an unsolicited e-mail on my work computer.

Similar program, Mailwasher Pro, actually allows you to bounce spam back to the sender, making it look as if your email address is not good (so, hopefully, it won't be resold.) It is programmable for friends, blacklisting, etc. I've used it for years.

There is a free version available here: http://www.mailwasher.net/

If you want the Pro version, you can get it free via TrialPay--all you have to do is sign up to try something (I did NetFlix for 2 weeks,) and you can cancel the trial with no cost, but get to keep the full-version software! Normal price is $39.99.

Could we see the version of the following that actually MAKES SENSE please?



Quickness. It is achieved because its interface is as visual and easy as possible. There is no need to select any checkboxes or find your way in a chaos of colored stripes. Messages from different categories are stored in different locations, which makes sorting them much quicker since your attention is not distracted by messages from other categories. This is the main peculiarity of the program. Besides, messages are processed quickly because only message headers are received, as well as due to the built-in system of self-teaching and the initial set of rules, which makes it

Effectiveness. You will delete all obvious spam without downloading it to your computer and will get a pure flow of correspondence. The interface of the program ensures that you view and sort message headers in the most comfortable way that you will not find in any mail client because they have
a different purpose.

Security. You control the process of fighting spam and do not allow an important business message to disappear. Your security is also increased due to the fact that most trash messages and viruses will not get to your computer and will not be able to infect it because they will be deleted right on the server.

Many of us have an anti-spam utility installed. At present it is almost impossible to not have taken action to protect against spam (see yesterdays discussion about registrating with an email-address).
There are many ways to protect and many tools around.
Famous freeware is http://www.mailwasher.net/
or CoffeeCup Spam Blocker (google for it) and many many more.

There are 2 flavours:
1] tools that do there work at your pc
2] tools that do there work at your mailserver.
The first option (example spampal) would be out of the question for me because you have to pull every mail to your pc first in order to discriminate between spam and friendly mail.

This one is of the second sort.
There is nothing that people will be more attached to then there spamfilter. I doubt many people will try.
I will not try because I am very much pleased with the setup I have now (I use 2 very different spamfilters and they work together superbly).
So I will not be able to give my opinion for this GAotD (many will, even without installing I'm sure).

When you do try, best thing is to create a free POP3-account first get some spam there and test it with that account. The reason is that I would not trust my account data (like password) to just some tool. I did not say that this is not to be trusted.
A few days ago (active share monitor) phoned home without telling you and without giving you the option to not do so. I just cannot test that here.

Watch the comments and when you do try watch your firewall closely.

This is a terrible way to manage spam. Extraordinarily primitive, outdated, and ineffective algorithms. Personally, I think Gmail has the best anti-spam filter--almost entirely automatic, extremely accurate, and you can check the spam folder. Although Yahoo! Mail is pretty good at eliminating spam, it's notorious for throwing away valid messages (I don't use SpamGuard Plus--I don't need it). Windows Live Hotmail is now doing a good job of suppressing spam, but, like Yahoo! Mail, it throws away messages it thinks are spam without letting you check them. Although there are various programs for eliminating spam from POP3 email, I don't use POP3 anymore. One handy tool which I very strongly recommend is Iconix eMail ID anti-phishing email sender verifier. It works with IE and Firefox (3.0 support coming), supports the major webmail clients, as well as Outlook and Outlook Express. It's a chicken-and-egg problem, very few senders currently support Iconix eMail ID, but if a lot of people use it, then more senders will support it. It works well with Yahoo! Mail and Windows Live Hotmail. Gmail support works, but has some minor glitches (at least in IE7, the Inbox page tends to stay "busy" but useable, but selecting the Inbox again generally fixes it). Unless you're completely paranoid, I recommend selecting Email ID Preferences, Advanced Options, Enable Iconix Feedback Component. This will send the domains of email messages you receive which aren't covered by the Iconix Truemark service to them, so that they can expand the number of domains covered.
