From Intego's support site:

Personal Antispam Discontinued

Justin
posted this on Jun 25 13:46

After careful consideration, a difficult decision has been made to discontinue support for Personal Antispam. This means that future filter updates will no longer be available. The last software update for Personal Antispam (10.6.12) will soon be released, providing compatibility for Mac OS X 10.7.4 (Lion). This update will also allow Personal Antispam to continue functioning past the subscription expiration date. Any future updates to Mac OS X may render Personal Antispam incompatible, and it will not be updated or supported for future Mac OS X software releases.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, you may still contact our Support Team by clicking here.

I don't quite understand why v10.5.7 has come floating to the top at this time when I for one have already been using 10.6.x for some considerable time. Surely, this version isn't in development anymore now that Intego have their, ehrm, you-beaut Internet Security Barrier X6 product on the market?

As a matter of fact, the installer which I downloaded just out of interest from the link at the top of this page renders v10.5.1. Time to do some manual modding, MacUpdate.

My previous review I still stand by, but X5 gets ZERO stars. I think paying $34.95 fee to upgrade for a $49.95 full is out right ridiculous. X4 does not work with Office 2008 so I PA is now gone from my Mac.

This product is far to expensive and brings almost nothing new to Mail...

Use the cheaper Purify in stead!
You will get rid of all your spam and also report abuse (spam) in one click, this feature brought down my spam level from over 70 a day to less than two a day...
It's unbelievable but true !

I've been using Antispam for a few months now and overall have been quite happy with it. Certain emails it still considers spam even tho i've said they are not and of course vice versa, but it is such a low number and easy to fix that it i don't mind. The NetUpdate part that came with Antispam is a piece of junk. It keeps telling me that the same update is available, but has to reboot my Mac first then it supposedly installs the update and must reboot again. If i want i can do this all day/week/year ... not cool/funny. Now SpamSieve gave me some problems a couple years back and i made the mistake of stating that on VT so the developer criticized me on their website ... Not cool! I have been working in corp IT dev for over 20yrs and the first thing you learn is that criticism is to be expected and to your benefit ... we are not gods.

NO documentation re: what is new in this update.

However, it continues to be the gold standard of Spam Killers for me.

The sine qua non of Spam Filters !

While there are some other good appl's, this is the premier spam filter.

I receive an average of 125 pieces of email daily and I have tried EVERY Spam Filter extant.

Manual is excellent and user-friendliness is obvious.

I run a gaggle of Macs. This appl' seems to be most at home on my MacBook. It works very well but it does require a reading of the manual. It has outperformed all of the competition but for SpamSeive2.4.4 with which it runs a virtual tie.
