Type of Program: Spam Blocker
Supported Platforms: Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP
Company Name: Batmore Technologies
Installed Size: 379
If you want a spam blocker (and who doesn't these days?) and you
want an easy, straightforward and uncomplicated installation that works with any
standard POP3 email program such as Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora and
Netscape Messenger, but not AOL, then this is the program for you.
Basically you install the program and follow the wizard (oh so easy), you can
import your address book from your current email client which becomes your
'approved' list. Set the options (my granny could do it) and you're off!!
The program works by allowing approved email through and anything else is put in
a 'Pending' tray. Senders of the pending emails are sent a message explaining
that you are protected by Spambat and all they have to do is follow a simple
instruction to be approved. The idea is that spammers hide their real email
address and use autosenders anyway so no approval will happen. Alternatively you
can monitor each email manually and either approve or ban it. You can also view
and log activity and see a graph of your approvals, bans and pending.
I have used this for a week now and the reduction in spam is substantial and
improving daily. This is highly recommended and well worth the money.
