Spam Sleuth monitors e-mail and analyses messages spam and virus characteristics. It requires very little configuration, removes executable attachments, provides detailed reports, enables the setting up of multiple accounts and works with all POP3 e-mail accounts. It does not support AOL, Juno or other proprietary e-mail systems but works with most e-mail programs including Eudora, Lotus Notes, Pegasus, Outlook, Outlook Express and Netscape. Automatic updates are provided for the latest spam detection methods. Executable attachments (potential viruses) are removed but a recoverable archived copy is retained keeping spam in a temporary holding area. It is possible to mark messages as Friends or Spammers to improve performance.
Spam Sleuth Enterprise
Spam Sleuth Enterprise uses thousands of tests to determine whether an e-mail is a bulk delivery of commercial junk e-mail and eliminates it from other e-mail. Each user can specify settings to ensure that required messages are delivered. Spam Sleuth acts like an e-mail server to the outside world. Spam Sleuth accepts and analyses e-mail messages for spam characteristics and looks for thousands of different characteristics, reporting on findings. If an e-mail is determined to be spam, the program compresses the message and retains a report with the suspect e-mail for thirty days (by default) after which it is deleted permanently.
