Microsoft Updates Entourage Spam Filter

Microsoft Updates Entourage Spam Filter — Microsoft has released Junk E-mail Filter Update 1 for Microsoft Entourage 2004 via the package’s Microsoft AutoUpdate utility (if you’ve set it not to check automatically, choose Help > Check for Updates from any Office 2004 application to launch AutoUpdate). The 2.9 MB update includes more current definitions of which email messages should be considered junk; since Entourage 2004 relies on spam definitions developed and constantly adjusted by Microsoft, updates are essential to keep the spam filter working. For more information on using Entourage 2004’s junk mail filter, see Tom Negrino’s "Take Control of What’s New in Entourage 2004" ebook; it includes a coupon for $5 off Michael Tsai’s excellent SpamSieve utility if you would prefer to use a Bayesian-based approach to filtering spam that learns from the mail you actually receive.
