"Very Difficult to Set Up"

May 09, 2005  |  By wmcnierney

 |  Version: Spamfighter 3.1.4

Pros

Haven't Been able to get it running yet, gets hung up in setup.

Cons

During setup the first step is to configure your firewall. I use ZoneAlarm Basic, and Spamfighter has detailed instructions to configure it, however they do not work. I followed them to a T 3 separate times, each time having Spamfighter re-check the settings and tell me they weren't right, despite the fact they looked identical to the pictures provided. And through all this you can not move on to step 2 until SPamfighter approves your settings. All I ended up with was a very frustrating experiece trying to configure this antispam utility.

"Crashes Outlook Express 6.0"

April 09, 2005  |  By leeatsjt

 |  Version: Spamfighter 3.1.4

Cons

I'm running Win XP Pro-SP1, Outlook Express 6.0, on a Pentium 3.00 MHz box. The install went fine, rebooted as requested, brought the machine back up and each time I opened Outlook Express I got the "Outlook Express has encountered an error and needs to close", etc. Tried rebooting again, no luck, three more tries, all three failed. The uninstall was okay, just left behind a few files that needed to be cleaned up manually. I wouldn't recommend this.

"Can't Say enough - GOOD to go"

March 18, 2005  |  By downeaster

 |  Version: Spamfighter 3.1.4

Pros

Easy loading, don't have to build filters, it is killing 60 spam a day from my commercial website. Works with Outlook Express - even on Win98SE - FREE - lose a few small features if you don't pay for it - SO What!! IT WORKS, and I don't have to "click" all those windows to tell it to kill a spam like McAfee. Running on 5 computers - all versions on Windows - hasn't missed a lick.

Cons

Haven't found any yet - isn't this strange.

"Another Lock-Up Nightmare"

January 25, 2005

 |  Version: Spamfighter 3.1.4

Summary

Oh yeah, this one, like so many other of the spam programs, is just another program that will lock-up Outlook and is more trouble than it is worth.
