    I have never used it, but it sounds promising. I use K9 personally and it has never let me down, easy to train too.

    I too use K9 and it works very well, so I've not been tempted to try anything else since.

    Or use POP-Peeper. You can check your mail at the server and even view it. If you don't want it just click it to delete and its gone. No training needed and no time wasted downloading...:eek: :D

    I use Mailwasher Pro. I like the fact that it, also, checks the mail on the server, and I can delete it there. It has a very good filter also. There is a free version that I think only checks one email address, but the Pro version does not limit it.

    Best,
    Jerry

    I've found Bayes filtering is an appropriate method to dealing with spam. This does mean training your emails, and some may think it takes too long, but it does eventually do its job effectively. A number of programs do use the Bayes filtering method, including K9. It's a shame it's not being developed further at the mo.
