"Useless in Outlook Express with more than one identity"

March 18, 2013  |  By rhytt

 |  Version: Agnitum Spam Terrier 2.0

Pros

Other than the fact that it is free, no pros.

Cons

Could not make it work with my Outlook Express. It would not load with other identity and, IMO, showed no evidence of sorting the spam. I had to do it manually every time. Uninstalled and re-installed three times with no change.

Summary

Unless I did something wrong in configuring this program, I cannot recommend it OLEXP.

"Easy to use, but useless"

February 16, 2012  |  By fpratt

 |  Version: Agnitum Spam Terrier 2.0

Pros

Easy to install & use

Cons

Pretty useless at filtering spam

Summary

Even after training on a large batch of known span & good messages followed by 2 weeks of in use training it's still awful. About half the spam does not get filtered and about a third of good messages get flagged with a false positive. I'm uninstalling this turkey.

"Outstanding product-Performance way beyond expectations"

March 25, 2009  |  By drussccg

 |  Version: Spam Terrier 1

Pros

Catches almost all the spam I couldn't get Outlook 2007 to screen. Hardly ever screens good email and when it did these were advertisements. I just want to receive them. I can't believe this is free. Installation was simple and so was training.

Cons

After a week I can't think of anything negative.

Summary

This is one of the best free products I have ever installed. After I installed it, I wondered if I was getting email until I looked in the spam directory. I mean it is catching all the junk I kept trying to create rules to screen. What a relief! I use Vista Home Premium and Outlook 2007. I almost never write reviews but I was so appreciative of this product I wanted to convey how helpful it is.

"Still waiting for it to do something"

April 10, 2008  |  By real_cassis

 |  Version: Spam Terrier 1

Pros

Easy to install

Cons

I've been training Spam Terrier on Outlook for a week and, like nmonro says, it still leaves really obvious spam sitting in my inbox. Loads of spam emails identical to those that I've already told it are spam. I think I'll go back to writing my own spam filter rules after this experience.

"Weak filtering capability"

October 18, 2007  |  By mwewe

 |  Version: Spam Terrier 1

Pros

It's well integrated and has a great interface. It's free and the parent company, Agnitum, is well established. The white and black lists work quite well, and it easily detects your contacts and people to whom you write and passes their mail as good.

Cons

The Bayesian filter really sucks. I trained it with 500 spam messages and as many good ones, and it still can't tell spam from good mail. It called everything spam until I decreased the aggressiveness of the filter. Now it freely allows words like viagra through, and even sex-based phrases don't trigger the spam filter. Hard as I try, I can't find a point where it allows mail through it is quite clearly not spam and stops spam that is blatant. This filter was the main reason I installed it and it's very disappointing. However, if all you need is white/black list capability then this program works well

"DIdn't seem to do a thing"

July 24, 2007  |  By nmonro

 |  Version: Spam Terrier 1

Pros

Free

Cons

Didn't like Exchange much, needed regular user permission from Outlook to run.

After "training" and a 20 minute scan of my emails it still didn't detect anything. V1agra, C1alis, mickey mouse watches, whatever. All quite happily sitting in my Inbox. Ah well.

"It conflicts with my av email guard"

May 04, 2007  |  By Iván Kubla

 |  Version: Spam Terrier 1

Pros

The best thing about this free spam filter is that by clicking on "email details" you can review the words used to rank a message as spam or valid. You can modify this "spam score" at your convenience. Another advantage for non-English speakers is that it's available in several languages.

Cons

On my PC, Spam Terrier seemed to conflict with my antivirus e-mail guard (I use Antivir Personal Edition Premium). Whenever I looked at the "spam score" mentioned in the PROs, I always came across the words "email guard" which obviously didn't come from the original message but from my antivirus. That's why I think that there must be some conflict which prevents most of the spam from being filtered. In the end, I had to uninstall Spam Terrier, but I'll give it a try again when I change my AV.
