Send Article to a Friend

SpamSieve 2.4 Released -- Michael Tsai has updated his popular and powerful spam detection utility SpamSieve to version 2.4 (see "Tools We Use: SpamSieve" in TidBITS-667 for a full review). The update features tweaks to the Bayesian email analysis engine for improved accuracy, phishing detection, filing of spam into different mailboxes in Apple Mail based on spam scores, support for new Habeas headers, and a variety of other minor changes. New copies of SpamSieve 2.4 cost $25 (save $5 with the coupon in "Take Control of What's New in Entourage 2004" or the soon-to-be-updated "Take Control of Spam with Apple Mail"), but the update is free to registered users. It's a 3.1 MB download. [ACE]
