Antispam software

Every since I did a review of Inboxer, I’ve been using it quite successfully to filter my email. I check a dozen accounts and get about 2000 messages a day. There are probably only a couple dozen messages that are good. However, I’ve noticed lately that Inboxer seemed to be classifying more and more messages for review, rather than as junk. So I uninstalled it and installed POPFile and Outclass. I trained it on the 30,000+ junk messages I had, and it found 10 messages that Inboxer had marked as junk that really weren’t. That’s pretty good for Inboxer, considering it had marked the other 30,000 messages correctly.

I’ll use the POPFile/Outclass combo for a while and see how it does.
