I've been using the Bayes IT Filter
plugin for The Bat for some months, and after som training it gave pretty nice results. After a windows reinstall, however, it seems to have forgotten all it's training, even though I pointed it at the old database files. It also has a habit of locking up every once in a while, using 100% CPU, and then I have to shut down The Bat.
So, what are the alternatives? I prefer something that plugs in nicely, as I like having the ability to manually classify mails as ham/spam (after all, this did work pretty well for the Bayes filter).
I also need to find a spam solution for my second workplace, where they use Outlook Express on all the boxes (changing email client is an option, but they don't adapt well to software changes, so I'd prefer staying with OE). Again, preferably something that plugs in, I'd hate having to run Yet Another Service (TM).
However, at least for the workplace, some proxy solution could work - I have a linux server there. I'd prefer not having to do per-host configuration, although adding something static to each client (ie, pointing it to the anti-spam proxy) would be okay.Shamurai
suggested on IRC that I should check out http://www.spamato.net/
which does sound nifty, but it's JAVA - and I'd really like to avoid that if possible.
So... what do I do?
