The most effective mail classification tool I have ever tried. My accuracy is around 98% (this depends also on your bucket configuration). The only thing I (personally) miss is a phrase classification vs the actual word bayesian classification. The first setup is not so straightforward, but you can rely upon user manual and forum on the official website. It works with POP and IMAP, it is multi platform and it is freeware.

I did check out Espionage and I have purchased it instead, it is more money but does more to what I need. Just locking apps, does not give me the necessary security I need for work files. IE word docs that can be opened by 5 different applications.

Sounded interesting. Unfortunately it's not for normal users but more for programmers. There's no explanation, description on how it works, or how you will classify your mails.

I installed it (easy, snow leopard, uninstaller script included in de .dmg file under utilities) and I could get to the configuration page.
And there it stops: I can create 'buckets' and all kind of other things but I don't know how it's going to work in Mail. Of which there is no mentioning in the 'configure with your mail program' section.

So before screwing up my whole mail usage at the moment, I stopped and uninstalled.

I'm a MAC user now: I am not going to spend an hour on figuring out what it is supposed to do and how I have to change to work with it. That's what I spent too much time on during my windows years.

I'm sure it's technically really nice and lot's of time spent on it.

All I need is to make the use of 'rules' that filter and move mails more easy.

If this can provide that, it doesn't show it.

here's an eyeopener: last comments from three years ago.....

Stupid of me not to check before trying. Stupid of MU not to include age into the information page/rating/ranking.

On a (new) Mac running OS X 10.5.5 it installs - but that is all that it does.
Try to figure out how to use it. I could not get it to work. The on-line html help is Mac-hostile.
Dond't waste your time. The installed folder of AppleScripts are also non-functional.
There is no included "uninstaller"
That is too bad because the installer drops a LOT of files everywhere.
Spotlight only finds a few, as it does not search within System Folders.
I used "File Buddy 9" and was able to delete all of the files.

This is NOT recommended.

This is possibly the best SPAM filter I've used in years. And you can't beat the price - especially considering the value! : )
