New Spam Defense Released From MailArmor

MailArmor 1.0 is now shipping for Mac users. MailArmor is a spam filtering app designed for preventing unsolicited emails from entering a users account. The app ships with support for major POP and IMAP mail servers, as well as support for OS X. According to the MailArmor:

Weire proud to announce that our newest application, MailArmor, has finally been released to the public.

MailArmor is an application that helps to keep your electronic mailbox free of unsolicited e-mail, better known as spam: it looks at the relevant parts of your email before it leaves the mail server, and lets the legitimate messages pass through undisturbed, while leaving suspect messages on the server, making them "invisible" for the e-mail client, to be reexamined later or just deleted after a while.

It works as a POP email proxy, with support for POP and IMAP mail servers, that makes it compatible with every e-mail client. As it has been developed in Java, it is also independent from the operating system or platform, and gives its best on Mac OS X.

The logic behind the filtering has a high level of sophistication, using both black- and white-lists of senders and an advanced engine that can use pattern matching and sender verification techniques to automatically pinpoint junk mail with a extremely high level of accuracy. A proved set of filters is included, and can easily be adapted by the user to its individual interests.
