"Just won PC Mag Editor's Choice (June 2006)"

June 02, 2006  |  By Privacy Nut

 |  Version: VQme AntiSpam 3

Pros

I've tried a lot of antispam products. Most are pretty good with blocking. But what makes them worth less (I didn't say "worthless") are those few good messages that get blocked. It just moves the drudgery from my IN box to the spam folder.

Read what the editors of PC Mag say in the new review (vqME is their new Editors' Choice). They highlight the fact that this one knows when to admit a message. It approaches perfection by keeping the definition of spam is very, very personal. It's not a cat and mouse game of seaching for the mis-spelled V1agra.

This utility is a liberator. It is one of those very few life-changing tools, because it frees up so much time. vqME knows what is truly relevant to me and it does this well.

Cons

Your looking at a pretty good product. Installation could be a bit easier. I needed some tech support toward the end.

"Terrific...returned control of my inbox to me!"

May 12, 2006  |  By crobinsonphd

 |  Version: VQme AntiSpam 3

Pros

I have a public email address and receive over 300 spam per day. Vanquish has elimnated every bit of spam. I rarely miss any legitimate emails because most legitimate senders who are not already on my safe list, are willing to confirm that they are legitimate. This software has been a timesaver for me. Much better than other spam filters that filter spam only after they've hit your inbox. This stops it at the Vanquish server. I have both a laptop and a Treo smartphone and wirelessesly sync and recieve email addressed to my one email address. Without Vanquish, my Treo would have also been saddled with hundreds of spam per day sucking up valuable airtime.

Wonderfully responsive and considerate technical support too!

Cons

None... very easy to use.

"VQme has absolutely solved my spam problem."

March 21, 2006  |  By war-cnet

 |  Version: VQme AntiSpam 3

Pros

I have my own domain, and early in my web site design experience I made the terrible mistake of posting my e-mail address on the sites. I have since removed them all, but still get about 1000 spams a day. Even with Mailwasher Pro, which I like very much, it is painful to clear all that spam off the POP server. VQme now does that for me entirely in the background. Rather than checking my e-mail only when I have a block of time to cope with the spam filtering, I can now check it whenever I want, fully confident that spam hasn't leaked through. I am also sensitive about losing non-spam messages, but VQme has enough safeguards that I'm not missing any. $25/year is a no-brainer.

By the way, I have just switched from Windows to Macintosh OS X 10.4 - VQme works just fine there.

"Wouldn't be without it now!"

March 03, 2006  |  By mha1967

 |  Version: VQme AntiSpam 3

Pros

I was getting so fed up with spam that I was thinking of ditching my domain. Now, it doesn't even reach my server.

This is the way all email should have been handled when spam started getting out of control. Forget filters, the spammers have proved they can get around them by using clever wording / spacing so that they're fooled. Until everyone is made to have digital signatures, this is the way to handle legitimate email and avoid spam.

Sure, it takes a little getting used to and a bit of bedding in. Compared to other programs I've used, it's no more or less of a problem. If you're serious about getting rid of your spam and even dishing out a bit of revenge, it's more than worthwhile persevering.

The guys on the helpdesk are fantastic. For a start, they are real people, which is always a bonus. What's more, they know their stuff and actually take time to help you (I'm UK based and they even called me back when I left a message for them).

The program is unobtrusive and doesn't slow your PC down in any way at all. As it doesn't even run on your PC, it obviously shouldn't!

In short, a great product that deserves to do well. The Google of the email world.

(PS - I've got no connection with them at all. I'm just a satisfied customer that believes in supporting and rewarding a good product and service. If they ever stop delivering, though, I'm just as quick to voice my concerns!)

"Your search is over! Look no further!"

January 19, 2006  |  By OtiumSanctum

 |  Version: VQme AntiSpam 3

Pros

VQME Anti-Spam 3.0 is an exceptional product backed by equally exceptional customer service. It's reasonably priced, user friendly, and on its way to becoming the standard in anti-spam technology.

Cons

Absolutely none. I'm certain that you will only be disappointed in this product if after experiencing any problems rather than contacting customer service you choose to uninstall it and move on. I came very close to doing this in a moment of frustration. Now, after several weeks of spam-free mail, I'm so glad I didn't.

 |  Version: VQme AntiSpam 3

Pros

Really does give control back...I used to spend quite alot of time dealing with spam; no more. I love it.

Cons

Have to jump through some hoops to get it "tweeked" just right, but they make it easy to do, and their customer service really really is great.

"Fantastic Product"

November 30, 2005  |  By labsys

 |  Version: VQme AntiSpam 3

Pros

I have been using VQME for the last year and a half and have absolutely nothing but accolades for this product. My Inbox has

seen only one or two SPAM emails, and that was my own fault. After going back and banning the offender, I have not heard

from them since.

The setup was easy, just let their software do its thing and "Voila!!" get ready to be lonely again... Their use of Port 587 to

bypass my ISP's blocking Port 25 is absolutely ingenious. The smart filter is a very cool feature, allowing it to learn my mail

habits while providing me with great protection. I no longer have to wade through countless offers for drugs from overseas, fake

Rolex watches, personal "enhancement" methods, or any other offensive material to make sure that my business e-mails get

through.

After countless hours and dollars spent on other spam filters in the past, attempting to contact non-existent tech support, and

then finding out that I have to unload yet another program and spend more money, it is satisfying to finally find a company that

takes its mission statement seriously. If you call Vanquish for technical support, you WILL be connected to one of the

founders who will not make you feel like a fool for not knowing all the answers. I have had to call them twice and both times, I

got a voice with a heartbeat at the other end of the line (I hate computerized support), and the problem was resolved instantly.

The best part of this program is that once you are set up, you have to do absolutely nothing. The software is designed to do all

the work and all you have to do is enjoy your now clean Inbox. I performed an experiment by creating and not protecting a new

address on my website. After just a month, I was getting blasted with spam on a daily basis and my protected address which I

have had since 1994 was getting NO spam. (I deleted the new address).

My search for peace is over, They should call this program Nirvana.

Cons

Inbox is now a lonely place... Absolutely no cons

"Do not use. Had to uninstall to get my email to work"

November 24, 2005  |  By Joelran

 |  Version: VQme AntiSpam 3

Pros

I like the concept, but it messed my email settings to the point of having to uninstall and manually re-config my email accounts.

Cons

This program will change your email settings (smtp and pop3 servers, as well as email addresses). I had to uninstall and manually reset all my settings. Never did get it to work. I will attempt a second attempt, but at this point, if you are going to try this, make sure you write down all your settings in case you need to uninstall. Very disappointing.

"FANTASTIC PRODUCT AND EVEN BETTER SUPPORT!"

August 23, 2005  |  By Don G.

 |  Version: VQme AntiSpam 3

Pros

I have tried many anti-spam programs and some worked OK but Vanquish is the only one I found that does everything that I want. Using the product is virtually intuitive so there is no problem with using it. In addition I find that on the very infrequent times I need support that they are fast, helpful, curteous, and even check back to see if everything is OK. Fantastic product and FANTASTIC people!
