    Two cans and a looooooooooooong piece of string? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Seriously, though, does this software need to work with a specific email client (and if so which one), do you want something that stands alone, or something else altogether?

    OK, to answer your question I use outlook express and I think it should stand alone. Thanks for your reply <img src=/S/innocent.gif border=0 alt=innocent width=20 height=20>

    I use SAProxy 1.2.1 for Windows, which is based on version 2.5 of SpamAssassin for UNIX systems. It is free, but only supported by a mailing list. It is a standalone proxy through which you pull your POP3 mail, and it tags the subject line if the message crosses its threshold for spam (you can customize the message). When you first start up, SAProxy uses a set of rules. Over time, Bayesian filtering will kick in. You can speed up that process by "training" it. This is a little complicated, so I won't go into it now if you're not inclined to go that way. You can pick up the installer and a couple of VBA modules from my site: http://jscher2000.home.att.net/saproxy/index.html.

    StataLabs, which created SAProxy, has now released a non-free commercial version for a good price. If you decide to get up to $10, we'll tell you where to get the discount code. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
