Spam Filter

By antuck ·
I am looking for a spam filter. I have a client that has 15 users and they use an external mail hosting company. They are not using Exchange server to get there email. Each client uses Outlook to check thier email so I need a client based spam filter. Can anybody recomend anything?

I tried MailWasher and it flagged my good emails as spam and the spam as good emails. I gave it a couple of days and it still let all spam throgh and was flagging to many of my good emails as spam.

Hi,
I use POPFILE, an open source email SORTER. With the sort rules in Outlook, you set it up to place emails of a particular kind in a folder called, eg, SPAM and other emails into WORK. You can have more than 2 folders, so potentially sort all emails into their appropriate folders.
I find that occassionally an email that I do want is mis-classified as SPAM, but because it is placed in a SPAM folder I can always check this folder before deleting its contents.
I have been using POPFILE for a while and it has a classification correctness of 98.9%.

Available from http://popfile.sourceforge.net

I checked this out and it seems a little hard to configure. Maybe it is just me but I wasn't sure how to get it to work right. It let all spam through.

My company has purchased Spam Bully 3.0 for Outlook and I have to say it is an absolutely excellent client side filter. I tried and tested a few products but SpamBully was by far the best. The very first time you start Spam Bully, its Bayesian spam filter will learn from your own personal email habits, identifying good and spam messages. Every time you download your email, Spam Bully will make sure good emails make it to your Inbox. Spam emails are sent to the "Spam" folder. Emails SpamBully may have difficulty classifying, go to a special "Unsure" folder. You can always adjust emails in these folders by using the Spam and Not Spam buttons in the SpamBully toolbar. Tons of features ..

I am testing this out right now. So far it looks great. After using the wizard to train it has blocked most spam. I think it missed 1 out of 10. This is only the third day but it was nice not having any spam go into the inbox Thanks
