Spamihilator works between your email client and the Internet and examines every incoming message. Useless and unsolicited spam mails (junk) will be filtered out. This process runs completely in the background. Spamihilator uses a number of different filters in order to achieve the highest spam recognition rate possible. The program is highly configurable and can be extended by plugins.
Spamihilator uses a number of different filters in order to achieve the highest spam recognition rate possible. The Learning Filter (Bayesian Filter) uses the rules of Thomas Bayes (English mathematician, 18th century) and calculates a certain spam probability for every email. Therefore the Learning Filter already recognizes more than 98% of spam mails. You can even train this filter! So it will know your messages even better than you.
Additionally, Spamihilator contains the Spam Word Filter that searches messages for known keywords. User-defined words and regular expression can be added. Besides, Spamihilator contains the Link Filter, the DCC Filter and the Rule Filter. All of them can be configured to your personal needs. Use the Training Area to further improve Spamihilator's spam recognition rate or install plugins that add more filters or other useful features to the program.
The program works with almost every email client, such as Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Eudora, IncrediMail, Pegasus Mail, Phoenix Mail, Opera, etc.
Lists of Senders
Add your buddys' mail addresses to the list of friends. Spamihilator will render all messages from these senders to your mail client without filtering. Messages from senders, which are on the list of blocked senders, will always be blocked. Spamihilator is even able to delete such messages directly on the mail server without downloading them!
Spam and Non-Spam
All recognized spam mails will be saved to the Spamihilator Recycle Bin. They will not be rendered to your mail client. So, a best possible separation between Spam and Non-Spam can be achieved! Of course, you can restore messages from the Recycle Bin. Use the Training Area to teach Spamihilator. It will learn which mails are Spam and which are not. It will become better and better.
POP3 und IMAP
Spamihilator is able to process the widely used mail protocols POP3 and IMAP. It therefore can be used with almost every email client and email server. If your email server supports secure connections over SSL/TLS, Spamihilator will automatically make use of this. The program will encrypt all incoming and outgoing data. This will prevent others from stealing your passwords or reading your personal email.
Spamihilator runs with all mail clients that support POP3 or IMAP. Of course, there is a Setup-Wizard, which automatically configures your mail client. Spamihilator is available in several languages and has got a comprehensive Online Help. Furthermore the program lets you know when there is a new version available.
