Catherin, I don't actually use Cloudmark at the moment as I've resisted paying for it. All
the same, I can report that it integrates into Outlook and Outlook Express quite seemlessly.


Although it appears as a toolbar item, you can get at the settings via options under the
tools menu where Cloudmark has its own tab within the options dialogues, so you can change
settings there.


Cloudmark creates a folder for spam where it places anything that's suspect. I believe you
can undefine messages it classes as spam if you tell it to but cannot quite recall how that
works now.


After the trial period Cloudmark nags from time to time to be registered. Seemingly though,
it does claim to offer screening of phishing messages as a residual service, and it still
transfers some messages that aren't spam or other unwelcome guests to it's spam folder, but
not many, and its not hard to go and check in the folder to see if it has been plai
cing legit messages in their.


Hope that helps a bit.

Thanks for the link Ray - it looks interesting.

Have you used this and if so do you find it accessible?  How do you use it
(they mention a toolbar...)

Yes Katheryn.  Cloudmark Anti-spam.  there's a free trial at:

http://www.cloudmark.com/desktop/

It isn't free though. there are versions for Outlook and Outlook Express.
It is very
effective, and they seem to pro-actively update there protection rules
based on user
feedback as well as their own inphouse efforts.


Hope that's some help.e

Hi,

On this subject - what I'd like to know is are there any spam filters that
work within Outlook Express? I mean ISPs use some which seem to be web
based - i.e. I cannot tell them something is or is not spam from Outlook
Express, I must do it on the web which I don't want to do as with the
amount
of mail I get and the design of my mail providers' websites I'd spend all
my
day rather than half of it on e-mail. . Then I've seen Mail Washer and I
guess there are other programs like that which sit between the server and
Outlook Express and therefore take more time if I'm going to use them. Is
there anything I can do within Outlook Express, apart from manually
creating
rules? I'd like a program which I could, say, press the applications key
on
a message and mark it as spam and in future it would go to deleted items;
or
bounce back some "mailbox not found" type message which might cut down
some
spam...does anyone know of such a program which fits in with Outlook
Express?

hi, unfortunately, the other problem with spam filters, is they sometimes
filter out legitimate messages. i've been using a 3rd party program
called
cloudmark, (can dig out the URL if you like). unfortunately, whilst this
program is highly rated, it does occasionally treat legitimate messages
as
spam, but this is the case with all such programs. i've stopped using it
for
the minute, as the most recent version, 2.12 that is, seems not too like
my
email hosts server and won't allow the download of messages from that
address. apart from that, it's a good program. but which ever road you go
down, none is infalible, and you should probably check the folder your
"spam" is filtered too in case of wrongly filtered messages. thus not
really
helping much in the long run.

Hi all,

Well, again I need to ask advice what to do with this rubbish. Much of
what
I receive is just a jumble of sentences, which often make little sense
and
I
don't care to read anyway.  There's quite a bit each day though and I'm
totally fedup with it.  I don't recognise any of the addresses from
which
this rubbish comes.

What should I do, please?
