Efficient : Block all unwanted email and protect legitimate mails
Spamspactor works as a POP3/IMAP4 mail proxy server, in other words, Spamspactor sits between your email program and your ISP's server. When your receive an email, Spamspactor processes the email you receive, works out if these messages are spam and then marks them as spam by adding **SPAM** to the Subject line and by adding a header, X-Spamspector: SPAM
This process is carried out, mainly, by comparing your emails against lists of known spam messages, using Public Blacklists (also called DNSBL lists) .
DNSBL lists are constantly updated to provide the most up to date and relevant information.
SpamSpector checks numerous DNSBL lists every single time you retrieve your mails for guaranteed results.
Once installed, SpamSpector works in the background , checking your email as you retrieve it. Any email messages that SpamSpector considers to be spam will be "tagged" with a special header.
Intelligent and improves its performance as you use it
SpamSpector gets better as you use it. It will learn from your habits: the recipients of your emails will be automatically added to your whitelist, also if a certain number of emails from a particular sender are received and not marked as SPAM within 7 days they will automatically be added to the whitelist. All this without having to lift your finger!
Furthermore, SpamSpector uses DNSBL lists to check if your incoming emails are SPAM. These are lists of parts of the Internet that in one way or another facilitate spam. Any email you get from a machine on one of these lists has an increased probability of being spam.
Community based effort anti-spam
SpamSpector will report to DNSBL lists all spammers detected by any of its users. Thus contributing to improve the world wide fight against spam on the web.
But how does SpamSpector know what is spam and what isn't? Well, it uses what are called DNSBL lists. Patterned after the famous MAPS RBL, these are lists of parts of the Internet that in one way or another facilitate spam. Any email you get from a machine on one of these lists has an increased probability of being spam. Some ISPs already block all email from machines on some of these DNSBL lists, but many do not. This is where SpamSpector comes in.
You can choose to use any or all of the freely-usable DNSBL lists; SpamSpector will look at the machines each email message passed through on its way to your mailbox, and if any of those machines is on one of the DNSBL lists you have chosen then that message will be tagged as spam.
Because not everyone who uses a machine on a DNSBL list will be a spammer, SpamSpector has a powerful whitelisting feature that allows you to ignore DNSBL listings for certain senders or for parts of the Internet.
