SPAMfighter 5.0 Now Filtering Better than Ever

The newest version of SPAMfighter is now up and running and protecting SPAMfighter users like never before.

SPAMfighter has just released version 5.0 giving SPAMfighter users the best protection possible. SPAMfighter 5.0 has many new improvements to improve the filtering capabilities, which are unique and available only to SPAMfighter users.

"This new version of SPAMfighter catches up with the latest forms of spam mails, making the filtering for SPAMfighter users even better." Martin Thorborg proudly states.

One type of spam mail, which has plagued e-mail users worldwide, has been the image spam. This particular spam mail continues to become more and more technically advanced, making it harder to filter.

SPAMfighter has created a filter to scan the image in order to determine if it is spam. The newest version of SPAMfighter has increased the speed of this scanning process by teaching the filter to recognize spam mails by looking at only small parts of the image. SPAMfighter can make multiple signatures for the same image. These signatures are only signatures of part of the image. This increases the efficiency of the SPAMfighter filter as it allows for more opportunities to calculate the known signature.

SPAMfighter has further created a method of filtering spam mails of various sizes. SPAMfighter filters can now scale e-mails down making the size irrelevant, and scan the e-mail for spam in this way. This makes it easier to detect spam mails by having less to sort through.

Another way of filtering image spam mails, which SPAMfighter has worked hard to improve, is the detection of text in spam mails. By being able to scan the images, text can be picked out and recognized as spam easier. This feature is still being worked on, and will become even more advanced very soon.

SPAMfighter uses a central database of spam reported by SPAMfighter users. Spam mails are filtered through the database by comparing the incoming e-mail to the spam mails in the database to determine whether an e-mail is spam. By having this database constantly updated by users reporting spam mails, SPAMfighter is able to filter the latest spam mails. In this sense, the community is constantly fighting against spam mails, and continuously blocking the latest forms of spam mails.

The SPAMfighter database is owned and maintained by SPAMfighter which employs technicians who monitor the reported spam mails, and work around the clock to keep up with the latest tricks of the spammers. By examining these reported spam mails the SPAMfighter 5.0 filter has been improved to better detect spam mails.

These new methods in spam filtering help to stay on top of the latest tricks which spammers are using. Both the speed and technology of the filter has been updated. This means SPAMfighter users are able to get their e-mail quickly and spam free.

SPAMfighter users receive the best filtering possible with the latest updates. SPAMfighter 5.0 is certain to give better filtering to SPAMfighter users by offering the latest technology in spam filtering.


SPAMfighter is Europe's leading spam filter developer. The Danish company is owned by the founders of Jubii.dk, Henrik Sørensen and Martin Thorborg, together with two programmers, Daniel Hjortholt and Martin Dyring. SPAMfighter employs 25 people and is based in Copenhagen. SPAMfighter is debt-free and is 100 per cent financed by income from the sale of the SPAMfighter client.

SPAMfighter draws its power from the fact that over 2.7 million users report spam as they receive it, with a single click. Once several users have reported the same spam message, it is automatically filtered for all other users. The result is that over 90 percent of all spam is filtered out before it reaches any given user. Get more information about SPAMfighter here. [www.spamfighter.com]
