What's new in this version:
Version 188.8.131.52 compatible with 64 bit, Windows 8, and Outlook 2013.
Spam Bully does an excellent job of separating the real messages from the spam. The program learns from the user's decisions of what is junk and what should be sent to the Inbox. Spam messages are not immediately deleted to allows the user to review the nessages. Spam Bully offers an Allow list and a Block list that can be edited at any time. This program helps keep my Inbox clear of the crap.
Spam Bully has a little trouble with broadcast messages (sent to multiple recepients). Sometimes legitimate messages are routed to the Unsure or Spam folders. But the sender can be added to the Allow list and the problem doesnt happen again.
Used to use and love this application for accurately eliminating spam.
I had stopped using it for a while, and after getting an email with a discount to try it again I installed the trial version to see if it was effective as it had been before. The add-in will not run on 64bit Outlook 2010 in my current configuration. I used the contact us form to request assistance or get info about whether it was supposed to work with my configuration and got no response at all after two weeks. Too bad, since I would have considered adjusting my configuration to support it. I won't go through the hassle without confirmation it should work, though.
This product may still be excellent. I wouldn't know, since it wouldn't run in my configuration (one more and more common with the advent of machines in 64bit mode). However, the biggest failure was with their support. I refuse to use a purchased application that requires yearly renewal if the company can't be bothered to answer a reasonable support question from a trial user.
I used the version compatible with Windows Live Mail. The bounce feature did not work at all (I set up a dummy email account and checked) and everything else is pretty much the same I get with the spam filters I already have.
brilliant.... at spamming to sell spam software. not great for much else. a haphazard collection of technologies poorly integrated... clearly not much development prowess... interesting marketing tactics
bloatware, ineffective, illicitly marketed. Bouncing is not possible by the mail client: Lies are not cool.
