    "Would Not Install"

    July 16, 2012  |   By AJthe3rd

    Version: Spamfighter 7.5.147

    Pros

    I cannot say.

    Cons

    No matter how many different ways I tried, this product would not install on my computer.

    Summary

    I wish I had the opportunity to try it and give some feedback. However, no matter what I did, it would not install or even get it show on my Control Panel as an installed program. Yet, when I tried to reinstall it, I saw the option to uninstall it from the list of options so I chose uninstall; and that is what it did. The bottom line is that my computer never knew it was installed or not. That just doesn't seem right to me.

    Anyway, I hope others had a better experience.

    "Worse than useless"

    May 31, 2012  |   By Andy2No

    Version: Spamfighter 7.5.133

    Pros

    Presumably blocks some spam

    Cons

    Blocks legitimate emails sent from the mail servers of major ISPs

    Summary

    "SPAMfighter has removed 43 of my spam emails to date." - That's the message I see at the bottom of my friends emails. Great. Unfortunately, a lot of those emails were from me. I have no way of telling him that, of course.

    The emails were sent from an account I've had for years, using the local mail server belonging to my ISP (VirginMedia). They contained nothing unusual but every single one of my emails since he installed SPAMfighter has been blocked.

    "Do not waste your money!"

    May 29, 2012  |   By bbmstlm

    Version: Spamfighter 7.5.133

    Pros

    It worked great for the first 3 months.

    Cons

    It worked great for the first three months. Since then, it has been nothing but a headache. They send me an email a day in reply to my emails asking for support. They tell me to uninstall and reinstall. I have done that no less than 10 times. I have updated their software per their online chat, and that did not work. I have asked 3 times to have someone call me and troubleshoot to no avail. I have also asked for a refund since their product doesn't work, and all I ever get is an email asking to uninstall and reinstall. We are a small business watching our pennies in this economy, and this was a waste of our money. NEVER AGAIN!

    Summary

    Stay far, far, FAR away, or just throw your money in the trash can... It is a complete waste!

    Pros

    This is an easy program to use. Filters to a spam folder of its own, easy to block new items that actually make it through.

    Cons

    Still have to go through the file

    "Good design but not such good execution"

    April 5, 2012  |   By jzn2tr

    Version: Spamfighter 7.5.131

    Pros

    Well integrated with Windows Live Mail

    Cons

    Free version was supposed to be for 30 day trial. After 2 days it started sticking advertisements on the end of all my outgoing messages. After 2 more days it deleted all the text of my outgoing messages, so I deleted Spamfighter.

    Summary

    Didn't have it installed long enough to tell if I really liked it before it started trashing all my output messages.

    "Excellent. Would highly recommend it to get rid of spam"

    March 28, 2012  |   By karenquest

    Version: Spamfighter 7.5.131

    Pros

    It picks up almost all of the annoying spam I've been getting - and in my case that was sometimes up to 250 spams per day. It has very few 'wrong' misses and it puts all the spam into a specific Spamfighter file in Outlook which you can check, in case anything 'real' gets in there. I've now got the free version and it does put a message (footer) at the end of all your outgoing messages but if you can live with that, you'll be really pleased with this software.

    Cons

    None. This software saves your sanity!
