SoftLogica has unveiled SpamAid 4.0 to protect Microsoft Outlook e-mail boxes from spam.
The updated program is based on Bayesian filtering technology, learning automatically by using your personal correspondence to increase the filtration accuracy.
Quarantined e-mails are stored in a separate spam folder and users can manage their own friends and “enemies” lists or build their own filters.
The program has an option to test outgoing mail for potential risk of being filtered as spam.
Recognition of newsgroup messages using a safe recipients list and automatic inclusion of outgoing mail recipients into a friends list are also available.
SpamAid comes with Pop3, Imap, http and MS Exchange support.
New in version 4.0 is the ability to automatically delete “undoubted spam”, so users do not have to browse their spam folder for long periods to see what has been quarantined before deletion. Users can now configure five rules for SpamAid to delete such messages immediately, while putting all other suspicious messages in the spam folder for review before they are deleted.
“Wildcard” phrases can also be added to the filtering engine to improve the levels and types of spam filtered.
SpamAid 4.0 costs £15 per licensed user and volume discounts are available. A 30-day trial version can also be downloaded from:
