Anyone else having trouble getting the scripts to appear in the Entourage menu bar drop-down or the right-click contextual menu? I start, restart, change script locations, change them back... nothing seems to work.

Again, if you get any errors, especially of the kind the two most recent posters have, check if you are using Panther or at least Jaguar and a recent version of Office v. X (> 10.2). Also, I have one unconfirmed report that JunkBroom doesn't work on Office 2004, which I don't have, so there are no guarantees (for now) that it'll work there.

I also get the "script could not be run. The end of file was reached" message when using the "mark as junk" script. I can't tell if it is working and don't know how to tell:-) Any help gratefully received. Cheers, Grant

I just loaded Junkbroom on my Mac using OSX and Entourage and it has definitely cut down the overload of spam I was getting. One question, though--when I use the Junkbroom entry under the little script icon, I get this message: " the script could not be run, the end of the file was reached." does anyone have this problem? know how to fix it?

Can you tell me the versions of Mac OS X and Entourage you are running? This might give some clues as to the cause of the error.

I have put up a ZIP file on the product page now. The only problem is that you have to uncompress it using Panther's built-in ZIP facility (or else Type/Creator codes aren't preserved).

I have downloaded the .dmg file again and I'm still having the same problem. This is not a unique problem, apparently it is a big issue in the Mac community and it first came up since some later builds of Jaguar. Apple has provided no information or help yet.

I would be very happy to try the programme but the disc image does not mount on Panther. It would be helpful if it could be made available on other compressed formats too. But it sounds fab!

I think this may be due to downloading during a new upload. If this isn't the case (if other people are still having this problem) I will make Panther ZIPs available as an alternative.

Frankly, I was skeptical of any junk mail filter when I saw this and I really did not want to pay for something to get rid of something I did not want or did not ask for in the first place - junk mail. My biggest fear was that some real mail would get filtered with such a program. In fact I had developed a set of scripts in Entourage to learn about and filter my junk mail. I had also thought about posting them on an exchange board for all to use, such as MacOSX Hints. My skepticism had not diminished when I saw JunkBroom, but since it was free I decided to experiment with it. I have now been using the program for over 3 weeks now. I followed the instructions for Panther and watched it evolve and grow, installing each new update. I have communicated with the author with suggestions. It now pleases me to say that it is now the only product I use to filter my junk mail. It does an exceptional and accurate job of getting rid of my spam. I have not lost or had filtered a single good message. I have archived my own scripts and no longer see a need to publish them. With a free product like this available, their simply is no need. What it does not filter it learns quickly and easily so once taught the offending item is never seen again. I currently regard it to be an outstanding product and an obvious exceptional value. The author has not incorporated all my suggestions into the product but has instead responded to me in a thoughtful. courteous and professional manner as to why he has not, with well thought out reasons. As far as I am concerned, while not having used other anti-spam programs but having read reviews, this program can replace and exceed most if not all of them and save the user time and money. Its only competitor would seem to be those programs that filter the spam before it is download, which I regard as somewhat risky since you could possibly lose messages should the filter make a mistake. However for dial-up access that could be a real timesaver - not having to download spam. For broadband connections, this is usually is not an issue and I would rather use JunkBroom. To address the Jaguar Install comments, the ReadMe of this product indicates that a manual install of the product is required and gives step-by-step instructions on how to do it. It is not a complex task. Based on my current experience, pre 1.0, I give this product my highest recommendation for usability, value, functionality, and customer service. Until Microsoft includes this, or something this good or better with in a future release of Entourage I urge everyone with any kind of a spam problem to try this product.

I just confirmed that the installer does indeed /not/ work on Jaguar. So 10.2 will only work if you copy the files yourself.
