      "Taking over the CPU"

      December 24, 2006   |   By djstein_dotmac

      Version: Not Found

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      I've been using JM for a while now, and thought tha it worked fine, although it's been filtering mail more slowly recently. Today when I tried to get my mail, it got hung up, and I noticed the CPU was taken over by Python. Not knowing what Python was, I checked here, and also on their website, and read up on Python, whitelists, etc. I uninstalled it and was able to retrieve mail once more. I'd be at loss without this site. I did reinstall it and it seems fine now. But to have this happen is not great.

      "Not useful anymore"

      Summary

      Works great until your whitelist gets to more than ten to fiteen names in it, then slows your computer to a crawl by starting up a PYTHON routine that takes over your CPU. No longer supported and hasn't been updated to fix this bug in over a year. The solution is to edit your whitelist using textedit, but then you lose your whitelist! This used to begreat but I would not recommend it now, sadly.

      "JunkMatcher works wonderfully"

      July 16, 2006   |   By eubanks

      Version: Not Found

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      I have been using JunkMatcher for more than a year. It continues to work very cleanly indeed. Commentary that the interface is somewhat complex is accurate, but I don't think there is really any need to play with it unless you like to play. That is, it will do its job even if you do nothing other than install it and use the mall.app junk/not-junk buttons and otherwise leave JunkMatcher alone.

      I'm looking forward to Mr. Han, the developer, having time to play with this package again. The bug in the whitelist filesize needs attention (though a work-around is provided on the website, and it does indeed work) and it would be nice were this package able to run in intel-based macs.

      I would recommend this package without hesitation to anyone who can take a little bit of time to read the documentation.

      "JunkMatcher a great addon filtering system"

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      I think this is a really great tool! Especially since it was FREE! I was also having problems with the Log file until I did a SPOTLIGHT search, deleted all files associated w/ JunkMatcher, and did a ReInstall. Worked perfectly, and the Spambayes filter showed up, too. It was "missing" when I tried to install the first time.
      You really need to go to their website and TRY to absorb how the filters work (Lots of "techie" stuff). I basically use spambayes because, by itself and with AppleMail's filter system, it does a great job. Sometime too aggressive - just retrain it not to be so aggressive!

      "Excellent program"

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      Although the usage instructions are a bit unclear and the interface seems overly complex for the average user, this program works as advertised and is quite powerful, especially considering it's freeware. I have tried and trained the native SPAM filters in both Thunderbird (1.5) and Apple Mail (1.3.1), but neither did a very good job of filtering out my SPAM. As soon as I installed JunkMatcher into Apple Mail, however, it begain catching ALL of my SPAM, even the hard-to-catch stuff that Mail could not catch. I was ready to purchase SpamSieve when I came across this gem. The developers should be applauded for coming up with such a fine piece of software that works as intended. Keep up the good work!

      "does not work with 10.4.3"

      I could not get it work with 10.4.3.
      The log file always is emty and if you try to open one mail in Junkmatcher it will crash. Always. I tried to install and uninstall the aplication a couple of times...
      The "manual" is not worth to mention.
      o.k. it is free but it does not work on my computer.

      Version: JunkMatcher 1.5.3

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      Fantastic and very capable piece of software. Easy to use for a novice, but if desired an expert can really go to town with it!

      Have to say for a piece of freeware this beats many commercial programs into a *censored*ed hat. Can't see a single reason to pay for a spam catcher when this is available. Except, as soon as I can, I'll donate to this fella - he deserves it.

      "v1.5 - Much faster, more stable and better..."

      Version: JunkMatcher 1.5.0

      ...integration

      Great app and as I said in the title, the new 1.5 version is even better. However the only think I miss in this version is the ability to report spam to spamcop. Even so it still manages to catch those spam that my sever misses. Great!
