This application is designed to help you rid yourself of annoying spam emails. Once you tell SpamEater Pro where your ISP's mail server is, and your login information, the program will connect with the server, either on a timed basis, or manually, and check the messages on the server for spam, removing any found and, optionally, archiving locally.
There are a number of fully configurable checks that are performed on the messages. These range from checks to see if the message is from one of your defined Approved Senders, a blocked sender, from a blocked country code, or checking to see if the server that delivered the message is in one of any number of internet blacklist databases.
Highlights of the package include:
SpamEater Pro includes a powerful and flexible set of filter rules to help block even the most persistent spammers. There's even a user friendly interface for you to enter your own rules to the many that come with SpamEater Pro. You can filter by message subject, header fields, bodies, blocked senders, message sizes, country codes (NEW in v4.0), and more.
SPF (Sender Policy Framework)
SPF is a means that domain owners can use to tell the rest of the mail servers on the Internet which servers are authorized to send mail for a specific domain. SpamEater Pro can check this, on domains that are using it, to be sure the message is not forged as being from such domains.
Set up a list of your friends email addresses and SpamEater Pro will always accept their messages. You can even import these addresses from your supported Address Book - from clients such as Outlook, Outlook Express, Netscape, and Eudora.
Real-time internet blacklist support
There are a number of dynamic Blacklists available today on the internet, containing dynamic lists of known spammers, spam-friendly ISPs, dial-up users, open relays, etc. SpamEater Pro can query its set of default databases in real-time and you can add more as desired - there's no limit to the number allowed.
SpamEater Pro supports the majority of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) with support for the standard POP3 and SMTP protocols. SpamEater Pro now also supports the secure encrypted SSL versions of these standard protocols with POP3S and SMTPS support.
Flexible scheduled checks
With SpamEater Pro 4.0, you can now set the same or separate schedules for automated checks. With these automated checks, your mailbox should stay free of spam with no effort on your part.
Local message archive
You can tell SpamEater Pro to download a copy of all rejected messages, on an account by account basis, and store them locally for later review. Messages in these archives can then be deleted, copied-n-pasted to SpamCop web form for complaint generation, bounced (NEW in v4.0), or recovered.
SpamEater Pro supports all network connection types to the internet and any other TCP/IP network. If you can successfully connect to the internet or your TCP/IP networks on your computer, then SpamEater Pro supports your connection.
