Spamihilator works between your E-Mail client and the Internet and examines every incoming E-Mail. Useless spam mails (Junk) will be filtered out. This process runs completely in the background. The Bayesian Filter uses the rules of Thomas Bayes (English mathematician, 18th century) and calculates a certain Spam-Probability for every E-Mail.
You can train this filter, so the recognition rate will continuously increase. In addition Spamihilator uses a Word-Filter, that searches messages for known keywords. The Spam Word Filter supports Regular Expressions. The DCC-Filter can connect with the DCC Network to recognize unsolicited bulk mail.
The program works with almost every E-Mail client, such as Outlook 2000/XP/2003/Express, Eudora, Mozilla Thunderbird, IncrediMail, Pegasus Mail, Phoenix Mail, Opera, etc. Spamihilator is able to receive e-mails from POP3 and IMAP accounts, and it supports Cross-Protocolling.
Hence, it is possible to receive e-mails from IMAP accounts with an e-mail client that supports only POP3, and vice versa. Add your buddys’ mail addresses to the List of Friends. Spamihilator will render all messages from these senders to your mail client. Messages from senders, which are listed on the List of Blocked senders, will always be blocked. Spamihilator is able to delete such messages directly on the mail server without downloading them (optional).
All recognized spam mails will be saved to the Spamihilator Recycle Bin. They will not be rendered to your mail client. Of course, you can restore messages from the Recycle Bin. Several translations are available and an auto upgrade feature is included.
