    Hi

    can anyone confirm whether or not ESS final will have Antispam support for Thunderbird?

    Although Thunderbird does have its own 'junk' handling, I dont find it that great. Also, if I am paying for ESS I dont really want to have to disable Antispam if I have paid for it.

    thanks.

    I wouldn't put money on ESS' spam filtering being any better than T-bird's. I'm using MS Outlook and I can tell you that ESS' anti-spam is no more effective than Outlook's junk mail filter.

    Spam has become such a huge problem that even the best filtering methods are not very effective. I believe the very best anti-spam products use a Challenge-Response technique.
