Software: Another Spam Tool
An independent reviewer of anti-spam tools I hadn’t heard of called Spamotomy has awarded its highest rating ever for a desktop anti-spam product to InBoxer from Audiotrieve, which I also haven’t heard of. And I thought I was on top of the whole spam thing.
The Spamotomy review, apparently, is the result of an extensive week-long evaluation involving the processing of thousands of email messages, including more than a thousand junk mail messages. InBoxer was effective right from the start, according to the Spamotomy review. At the end of a week, InBoxer removed 96.5% of all spam with a 0.07% false positive rating. That’s not bad, though it’s not as good as POPFile has achieved over a longer period.
A possible downside: InBoxer only works with Microsoft Outlook. The product has a list price of $24.95.
