Mail: Apple Chomps Spam

 This from reader Rulf Neigenfind about Windows, Macs and Spam: “You have certainly heard about the built-in mail client in Mac OS X that
comes with an AI equipped spam filter. This filter uses “adaptive latent semantic analysis” to identify junk mail and works amazingly well. Once more I can only state how lucky I am that I’m not forced to bear with Windows.”
Thanks Rulf. I’ve tried the filter and while it’s very good, I don’t see it as vastly better than the Bayesian Filters available for Windows-based email. What’s good, I guess, is that it comes preloaded, and it’s very easy to use.
