MailScanner 4.64.2
October 1st, 2005

A stable version of MailScanner has been released. SpamAssassin 3.1.0 is supported better, and a few minor features and bug fixes have been made.

SpamPal 1.72 Beta
September 14th, 2005

SpamPal sits between your email program and your mailbox, checking your email as you retrieve it. Any email messages that it considers to be spam will be “tagged” with a special header; you simply configure your email client to filter anything with this header into a separate folder and your spam won’t be mixed up with the rest of your email anymore.

Latest Changes:

  • Now removes any pre-existing (and possibly forged) SpamPal header lines
  • Pop3: Fixed crash in prefetching
  • Pop3: Now supports CAPA (ie “Capabilities”) command
  • Pop3: Fixed unlikely buffer overflow when processing malformed LIST response
  • IMAP4: Fixed crash in prefetching
  • IMAP4: Fiddled with removal of \Seen flags from moved spam messages
  • Public blacklists/DNSBLs: Fixed buffer overflow that was causing crashes
  • Where supported, now uses Microsoft’s DNSAPI.DLL for DNS queries
  • No longer does hostname lookups for and several other frequently-used domains
  • Fixed issue where multiple public blacklist entries were querying the same resource;
  • Transparent Proxy: a whole load of bugfixes


SpamSieve 2.3.2
August 10th, 2005

SpamSieve 2.3.2 is now available with many enhancements. Among others:

  • Made various improvements to increase SpamSieve’s accuracy.
  • Added Quit when mail client quits option.
  • Sped up filtering when Growl notifications are enabled. Improved the text/layout of the Growl notifications.
  • Re-installing or updating Eudora could have the effect of re-enabling Eudora’s built-in junk plug-ins. This could reduce the filtering accuracy and cause unexpected behavior as multiple plug-ins acted on the same messages. Now, if SpamSieve detects that its Eudora plug-in is installed, it will automatically disable any other Eudora junk plug-ins.
  • When you reset the corpus, SpamSieve automatically creates a dated backup so that it’s possible to revert, if need be.
  • The pop-up menu for selecting the uncertainty threshold now supports scores as high as 98. This makes it possible to designate all non-blocklisted spam messages as uncertain.
  • More errors are now logged.
  • The history database is more robust on Tiger.

SpamSieve brings powerful Bayesian spam filtering to Mac email clients. It is quick and easy to control it from within your mail client, and you can customize how it interacts with the rest of your message sorting rules.
