I have left this tombstone entry for historical interest.

Spam Detective
defunct. Sold and renamed to MailShield who botched it so badly it no longer functions at all. It works with MAPI (Messaging API), POP3 (Post Office Protocol version 3) and SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) mail servers.

It runs in parallel with your normal mail program. You turn off your mail’s server’s automatic mail pick up, to give itna chance to look at the mail first. It decides which is spam and which is not, based on words in the subject and body of the message. You can also specify that some words are merely indicative, not proof of spam. It will maintain lists of known spammers and known friends. It then deletes the spam from your server. Then, you tell your mail program to pick up the mail, and it picks up just the spam-free mail from the server.
