Mozilla 1.3 Alpha Released

Friday December 13th, 2002

Mozilla 1.3 Alpha is out! This release introduces shedloads of new Mail & Newsgroups features (including Bayesian spam classification, message views and improved filtering), a new Bookmarks Quick Search bar (similar to the one found in Phoenix) and support for the Back and Forward buttons on the IntelliMouse Explorer. There's also improvements to the DOM Inspector and lots of other bug fixes. However, remember that this is only an alpha release, so expect bugs.

Builds are available from mozilla.org's Releases Page or directly from the FTP site. Check out the Release Notes for more info.

So give it a try then. Write me with something I should be interested in and try to make it look like spam. Send a followup to me announcing the content of the spam-like mail and I'll let you know what happened. I suspect it won't get marked as spam. See, the Mozilla bayesian spam filters look at more than just the body and they're designed to avoid false positives. I've sent myself your message, copied pretty much exactly as you posted above and sent from several newly created webmail accounts (hotmail, yahoo and netscape) and had none of them marked as spam.
