    Spam Bayes for Outlook (Outlook 2000)

    Has any one heard of Spam Bayes? A free download that works with Outlook, if so where can I find it?
    Thanks!

    You can get it here
    I've never used it so do not know how good it is.

    Welcome to the lounge.

    Re: Spam Bayes for Outlook (Outlook 2000)

    I've been using SpamBayes for a while now. It takes a while to learn what you want marked as spam and what not, but once it is up and running, it does a good job.

    It has periodically stopped working for me, but I've found that upgrading to the newer version of SpamBayes (which ever one that was) has helped.

    Re: Spam Bayes for Outlook (Outlook 2000)

    I've use SpamBayes on Outlook at work for several months now, and upgraded to the most recent version.

    I find that it does a fairly good job of finding "definite spam" if you set the "percentage likeliness" to about 85%, and also finding the "possible spam".
    I can say it has never classified a message as spam which I actually wanted.
    Currently the percentage of "proper messages" is running for me at rather less than 50% of the messages received.

    But you still have to go through the subjects and senders of the "possible spam" to classify them as "definite spam", so it isn't a COMPLETE answer, nor could it ever be, with the range of variations in the subjects that are now appearing.

    Would that all this inventiveness was directed to more practical ends.

    I think we've been saying that about advertising for 50 years now. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Spam Bayes for Outlook (Outlook 2000)

    I was going to suggest two alternative subjects, <img src=/S/new.gif border=0 alt=new width=35 height=15> one beginning "p" and the other beginning "r" -- but I think I'll leave it there... <img src=/S/angel.gif border=0 alt=angel width=15 height=21> <img src=/S/stop.gif border=0 alt=stop width=26 height=24>
