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."
SPAMfighter was honored with 4 out of 5 stars in the May 2008 edition of Computer Power User Magazine
