Hunting down the spamBy Chris Williams. Published: 12th May 2002, 17:43:39 | Permalink | Printable
Killing spam mail before you download itSpam, unsolicited email and offers to get you super-rich-super-fast pour into the drobe email box daily. You can only imagine what we'd like to do to the scum that dellude themselves into thinking that we care about their schemes and products.
Drobe was therefore very interested to learn of Image Software's MailScout, billed as "antispam and on-line mail inetrrogation software". MailScout connects to your mailbox, using POP3 or IMAP, and using some user defined filters, offers to delete suspect mail before you fetch them. Fantastic.
MailScout, developed by the people who brought you Nutmeg, is a commercial product.
