Mozilla Named Best Anti-Spam Software in German Computer Magazine

Saturday August 9th, 2003

Simon Paquet writes: "In a recent shootout of anti-spam software in the German computer magazine c't (link is in German), Mozilla Mail won the first place against competitors like K9, Apple Mail, Mailshield Desktop, SAproxy, SpamBayes, SpamCatcher, SpamNet, SpamPal and SpamSieve.

"To quote from the magazine article (very rough translation into English): 'If you're using Windows, Mac OS X or Linux — the fast and reliable Junk Mail Controls of the quite function-rich email program Mozilla are unsurpassed. Anyone who at this time is looking for an anti-spam solution should think about switching to Mozilla.'"

The SpamNet/Cloudmark "collaborative filtering" approach is superior. All of the Bayesian solutions I've tried miss way too often both in letting spam slip through and much worse, blocking legit emails.
