SpamSieve 2.6 Released - Adds Support for Thunderbird

Hanover, NEW HAMPSHIRE    Mar 22, 2007 in Software


SpamSieve has been updated to version 2.6. SpamSieve gives you back your inbox by bringing powerful Bayesian spam filtering to popular e-mail clients. It learns what your spam looks like, so it can block nearly all of it. It looks at your address book and learns what your good messages look like, so it won't confuse them with spam. Other spam filters get worse over time as spammers adapt to their rules; SpamSieve actually gets better over time as you train it with more messages.


[] This update includes the following enhancements:

* SpamSieve now works with Mozilla Thunderbird.

* Improved detection of image spams and phishing messages.

* Made various message analysis improvements to increase the accuracy of the Bayesian filter.

* AppleScripting the whitelist and blocklist is much more efficient for scripts that access a lot of rules.

* Improved compatibility with pre-release versions of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.

* When installing a plug-in for a mail program, SpamSieve now opens the relevant page of the Apple Help to help you complete the installation.

* The alert when SpamSieve has auto-updated its Apple Mail plug-in is now non-modal, so it doesn't interfere with spam filtering.

* The Software Update checker now works behind an HTTP proxy, and the auto-updater is now compatible with FileVault.

* Can now import addresses from the incorrectly encoded .vcf files that are generated by recent versions of Address Book.

* Growl notifications are now enabled by default.

* The Apple Mail plug-in is more robust.

* Fixed some small memory leaks.

* Made some performance optimizations to the message tokenizer.

Requirements: Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later (10.4 or later recommended)

Price: $30; free update for owners of previous versions
