    Last week I got, and have been trying Blue Squirrel's
    Spam Sleuth; looks interesting, and workable so far. It is, I believe, program with "Bayesian" filtering; has that capacity of being trained accordingly.
    It's slower on checking than MailWasher Pro, which I generally use. Before that, had (and still use) SpamKiller also, for doing mail checks.
    Neat thing about these programs, is ability to see mail (on the ISP's server), deal with it there as you wish, rather than downloading it at some risk.
    PopFile is the other well known Bayesian filtering program, along w/K9 mentioned here.
    Have elsewhere posted notes on "my wish list" for things in future ver. of MW Pro, and sent note to the co. that makes Spam Sleuth. Nothing is perfect of course, but they seem to be coming along nicely.

    100% isn't merely good. It's poifect!

    I have used K9 more than 2 weeks & it has made no mistakes. Not even one.

    I have come to distrust mailwasher & other anti-spam programs that are based mainly on blacklists. They gave me too many false positives. I cannot afford very many of those.

    I do hope you find what you are seeking. Spam is downright nasty.

    peace unto all of good will......bellgamin
