    Advice for Bayesian filter with these features? (OL2002 - SP2)

    Hope it's okay to post this question here. I've been using the SpamNet beta all this time and now I'm looking for another Bayesian filter. What I would like to see is importation of my OL Contacts folder into the whitelist and the ability to send bounce messages.

    Thanks in advance.

    Please forget about sending bounce messages. To whom are you going to send them? The "from" and "reply-to" addresses in true spam are always fake or, worse, a completely different real person's address.

    At least this simplifies the requirements. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    You might find some programs listed on the Software board.

    There are a fair number of Bayes filter products available for Outlook. Searching in Google will bring you a fair number of choices. Whitelisting your Contacts is highly likely with any that hold themselves out as "integrating" with Outlook.

    The days of a spammer caring whether you wanted to receive their messages are long since gone. Any bounce message will consume bandwidth and either confirm that you have a valid address or aggravate some poor soul whose email address has been highjacked without their knowing.

    You're right, of course, about the bouncing.
