    "highly accurate and easy to use"

    October 5, 2006  |   By s_kempster

    Version: SpamWeed Anti-Spam Filter 2.5 rev290

    Pros

    Highly accurate and sensitive to training. It had 100% stopped my spam after about one weeks training! In all products I have tried, this one is by far the most accurate one, much better than other "bayesian" filters.

    It is also an "install-and-forget" product. After a few days training, you can barely notice its existence.

    Cons

    The only problem I had is that it is initially very "strict" and blocked amost all of my mailing list subscriptions. That does not happen after I put all these mail address into the "allow list" of SpamWeed.

    It is a great program you should try out, but make sure you train it well for a few days.

    "Initial Install OK, but Next Day Locked up My Computer"

    August 6, 2006  |   By reggie_six

    Version: SpamWeed Anti-Spam Filter 2.4

    Pros

    I would have liked to give this program a good rating and was almost ready to, but but...See the Cons below.

    Good idea, easy to use interface. Once installed, Spamweed sets between your ISP and your email client and scans the email before you receive it. Any email that looks "bad" to it is held in its queue, and it tracks the email that it passes one temporarily. You can "teach" it what is bad and good to you by taking email out of its hold queue and releasing it to your email client, or by taking good email that it has passed and moving it to the hold queue. When this is done, the program then adjusts its filtering to your desires.

    I use Incredimail as my email client for both myself and my wife, and the program installed readily and connected to Incredimail and my ISP with no problems

    Cons

    On the second day of use, Spamweed locked up my computer by putting the CPU usage to 99% or more (I run Win XP Pro). Spamweed loads at startup and, for some reason, was trying to connect to the ISP (as far as I can tell) and couldn't. Instead of exiting gracefully, it looked like it looped and ate up the CPU. Once I removed it from the startup menu (not an easy task when CPU usage is 99%), everything returned to normal. However, when I started it manually, the CPU usage pegged again, so after some more work, I uninstalled it completely

    Good luck with it if you try to use.
