"Komputer For Alle" Spam Filter Review
SPAMfighter, Spameater, Spambully, Choicemail One, CA Anti-Spam 2007, and Spambuster.
"Komputer for Alle" commented:
"In all, SPAMfighter is without a doubt the best out of all the tested anti-spam solutions. Especially for IT-beginners who need a solution that works without maintenance. The program is easy to install, and gives no extra need for support. It is especially a bonus that everything works as soon as the program is installed."
Computer Power User Spam Filter Review
"SPAMfighter is amazingly effective right from the start, benefiting from the "training" that millions of other users have already performed. Of 321 test spam mails, it caught 98.4% within one minute of installation. It flagged no personal messages as spam falsely, but it incorrectly trapped 29% of emails, like desired advertising offers and newsletters, which is still pretty good. By using whitelists and blacklists, even these errors could be eliminated with some configuration."
