Like your professional e-mail client, but jealous of Mail.appis spam filter? SpamSieve brings powerful Bayesian spam filtering to other popular e-mail clients. It learns what your spam looks like, so it can block nearly all of it.

It also learns what your good messages look like, so it wonit 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.

New in Version 1.3:

  • More resilient to spammersi tricks for obfuscating words
  • Can use e-mail addresses in the system Address Book as a whitelist
  • Messages sent from those addresses will never be marked as spam
  • Greatly reduced overall memory usage as well as launch and quit times
  • Can save false negatives to disk for later reporting to SpamSieveis developer
  • You can edit the spam and good counts associated with a word, remove selected words from the corpus, and reset the corpus entirely
  • Type-ahead navigation in the Corpus window. Type the first few letters of a word or number to select it (and scroll to it)
  • You can hide statistics from before a set date, to better see the current accuracy and spam reception rate
