SpamBully Grows Up
A second version SpamBully, a Bayesian filter based spam fighter, has been released.
SpamBully 2.0 integrates into Outlook and Outlook Express and introduces some new features:
- Email blocked based on the language of the email or the country of origin;
- A link analyzer looks for spam by following links in an email and analyzing the web pages. Realtime Blackhole List integration continually checks for domains that are responsible for sending spam and automatically filters them from the Inbox;
- Users can choose words and phrases they wish to allow or block from their Inbox;
- Customizable languages, including English, Spanish, Italian, German, French, Russian, and Chinese.
These sound like good features. It’s a shame the product doesn’t work outside the Outlook world, but for those within it, it sounds like it’s worth a try. SpamBully 2.0 is free to try for 14 days. Single user licenses cost $30.
