E-mail filter with helpful spam reporting functionality.

Overview

Em@ilCRX (EmailCRX) is a desktop-based, automated e-mail filtering software system that uses DNS validation, Bayesian type filter, image spam filtering, recipient validation, country filtering, user defined phrases, and an optional challenge response system to stop spam from making it into your e-mail inbox. Effective e-mail filtering without the errors possible with content, or RBL based filters.

Some features of Em@ilCRX:

  • Rating Engine is reverse DNS based
  • Filter e-mail by country of origin
  • Built in Challenge Response (optional use)
  • Filter on user defined expressions
  • Accepts e-mail from friends
  • Friends list is easily imported
  • Forward filtered email
  • Filter image spam
  • Validate email's recipient list
  • Report spammers to their Internet Service Providers
  • Report phishers and other spamvertized links to their Internet Service Providers

What's new in Em@ilCRX

Version 1.6.5:
  • Changed the way the filter is trained, and added an admin item to "tune" the filter.
  • Items marked as spam using the other Em@ilCRX checks are not automatically added to the filter content any longer. This approach was causing the filter database to grow unnecessarily large. New items are added ONLY when the user manually marks (or re-marks) an item as spam.
  • Added a "Tune Filter" feature, that will remove obscure items (items that have been referenced an insignificant number of times) from the filter database.
  • Both of these changes should improve the Bayesian type filter's performance significantly.

It is good that MacUpdate provides download link for this app. The developer's site offers only "Buy now" button, and it does not say how long and in what extent the demo works (is it fully functional for, say, 30 days).

This software is bad. It can automatically use your email to report any email it thinks is spam instead of just placing it in your spam folder. Every ISP takes reports very seriously as they should if it comes from a human customer - but all those false positives increase the cost of legitimate SPAM reporting. Therefore it actually may help spammers a lot!

Keeps getting better-the latest versions are super-easy to set up now, and the program works well-I now get minimal spam, and have had more than a few reports of spammers getting shut down due to this program. What it does simply is rate the mail, and forward good mail on to your email program-you can then pick through the flagged mail, and correct mistakes (if any-mine was easy to train, and now rarely makes a mistake). You then click the "report spam" button, and it does just that. I then sometimes get messages from the ISP telling me action has been taken against the spammer, etc., and after a few weeks, a marked decrease in the spam I receive in my accounts. It made a Yahoo! account that was nearly unusable due to spam one of my main accounts again! Highly recommended!

This program is an excellent way of dealing with spam. It acts as an intermediary between your email program, and your mail server-so, the mail it designates (or you manually mark) as spam doesn't get to you. It has some great reporting features, which have actually worked out for me (ISP banning spammers) which is satisfying. It really feels like you are being proactive about spam, not just filtering it out. I combine this with another program to keep my email spam free, with about 99% effectiveness (the other one simply sorts the spam into a folder-the one or two this program misses). A bit of a hassle to set up, but the developer is REALLY great at helping with that, and is always available to assist. I highly recommend it
