Thanks, Vitaly! I went ahead and purchased the Outlook license as well... However, Plimus is "reviewing" my order - I suspect because I used the same credit card for a second purchase quite soon after the first (?).
It is a fraud check control, which is a bit paranoid on Plimus. But don't worry, in worst case it takes no longer than a few hours.

Vetaltm, I do hope my mini-review drummed up some business for you and helped get the word out on a wonderful (and powerful) plugin.
Thank you once again! I think that your review is an excellent tutorial, especially for those who afraid of a long feature list and prefer a human readable illustrated text. A link to this article is already on the plug-in's webpage, so anyone can read your review as a complementary description.

Just to note - I used the discount code successfully to purchase a license for the Bat! version but the code was refused for the Outlook version...  :( :(
The coupon problem is fixed. BTW, you can write directly to [email protected] in case of any issues.

so far so good -- however one setting i immediately changed is that by default its set to filter spam at the SERVER level while reading pop3 headers.  I'm not sure that should really be the default for a new user who is unsure about false positives..

i set all of my accounts to filter after downloading -- that way i can easily check the junk mail folder and make sure nothing has been marked as spam when it shouldnt be.
By default the plug-in uses only DNSBL and black rules for blocking spam on the server. This is a reliable procedure, and the probability of false positives with default rule set and 3 minimum hits for a sender IP is nearly zero. Also it is possible to restore the mistakenly blocked mail from Filtering log. The plug-in keeps the blocked messages on the server for 7 days (adjustable parameter from Filtering log settings). So you wont lose a good message even it is received from blacklisted IP, with unknown sender and a word "viagra" in subject :)

Hello, I'm the author of AntispamSniper. This is a nice review, thank you Innuendo!

You've actually inspired me to try AnispamSniper again.. I tried it a year ago and was overwhelmed by the options (just as you point out when describing it's drawback).  I just felt lost and it didn't work as well as i hoped out of the box.  But i'm willing to try it again.
I understand your feelings, because the program looks a bit more complex from the inside :) But the latest version, with the features added during last year (SpamNet, URIBL, additional rules), provides good filtering quality even without touching the settings. And in most cases it is not necessary to dig all options for reaching 99% quality. It is enough to mark some amount of saved messages as spam and ham. The plug-in will update the content classification database and white/black lists of addresses. Filling the white list at maximum is most important, because this allows to avoid the false positives. After the initial training the plug-in should classify incoming mail with at least 95% quality, and the number of mistakes becomes lower as you mark the misclassified mail as spam and ham and use auto-training. The classification results are displayed in Filtering log, and it is possible to see the spam ratios for each message and the reasons of classifying a message as 100% spam or ham.
The advanced settings, e.g. RegExp based rules, are useful for those who receive hundreds or even thousands of spam messages every day. Using the customized set of rules it is possible to block most of spam on the server, without downloading the message body.

BTW, I'd like to give some number of free licenses for the commercial version of TheBat plug-in to the honored members of this site and a discount coupon for others. Please let me know how to make this properly. Thanks!
