The best keeps getting better. I haven't seen a better product for filtering junk mail anywhere (free or otherwise).

Excellent. Beats all the other spam solutions hands down. It's also free and open source. The new 0.20 versions are considerably faster I have noticed.

Very good. Beats all of the other spam programs hands down, needs very little training, and is easy to rectify mistakenly filtered email. A definate favourite.

It's impossible not to love this program. It takes a month or two for it to learn everythingbut once it does you're set and won't see a bit of spam that you don't want to.

This is the perfect "set it and forget it" spam solution I've been looking for for a long long time!! Took me just a few days to train it and there it went by itself elliminating my spam problems and achieving over 98$ accuracy. I'll never uninstall it.

I love this program. I'm currently using 0.18.1, I will upgrade to 0.19.0 once it's out of BETA... One question for anyone who might know, does this new version fix the bug with HTML color codes? Where sometimes popfile stores a number like #33333 as #33 3333 in the corpus, therefore screwing up the word count and making the classifications go crazy (spam being classified as real, real as spam, etc) Thanks

Excellent program. It's self learning. You teach it what goes where, and it eventually takes over classification for you. Typically it needs a week or two to get accurate, but then, it's awesome.

Cured all my spam problems. It can be run as a NT service.

highly recomended.

this is the best tool of its kind, definitely worth a try. One word of advice, after your first batch of mail, only train it when it makes a mistake. It will be much more accurate in the long run. It gets very accurate very quickly, depending on your email volume. Only took a day of training here before it was more or less left alone. And it can be used for more than just spam. I have it sorting out my beta and half-life email too. You can train it for pretty much any style of emails. Awesome.

Wow, I've used many different spam filters/spam killers however, POPFile is the most accurate yet with about 99% accuracy and virtually no false positives. There is some manual setup for your mail client, but it works great on Outlook, Outlook Express and Poco.

The multiple bucket feature allows for sorting of all your incoming mail into the correct mail folder. For example I have mail folders in Outlook setup for home, business, emags, news, updates, spam, etc and POPFile sorts out the spam and then puts good mail in the proper mail folder.

The software is in a active development open source phase on popfile.sourceforge.net. Best yet its is free without any limitations. Donations are accepted, if you like the program.

I've been using this for a few weeks and it is working great. It does take a while and alot of coaching before it starts to filter things correctly, but once it's working, it helps alot.
