Re: Freeware Alternative Software List

are all those programs spyware/adware free? perhaps when you can edit that post again, it would be a good idea to make some indication of which ones definitely are and definitely aren't free of adware... because that's how a lot of these "free" programs generate money for their makers....
nice list!

No-one said it was, there's a lot of software listed that isn't windows based, and I don't spose you feel like changing your avatar to one that doesn't match another forum users do you? It's getting confusing.

Re: Freeware Alternative Software List

Some Freeware Anti-Spam for you....

K9 - Version 1.28

K9 is an email filtering application that works in conjunction with your regular POP3 email program and automatically classifies incoming emails as spam (junk email) or non-spam without the need for maintaining dozens of rules or constant updates to be downloaded. It uses intelligent statistical analysis that can result in extremely high accuracy over time.

K9 learns from its mistakes and becomes better and better at being able to identify spam. More importantly it learns to recognize what you consider to be spam.

K9 is for standard POP3 email accounts only. It does not directly support Hotmail, AOL or any other kind of webmail type systems, nor does it support SSL or secure authentication as used by MSN.

SpamBayes 1.0

SpamBayes is not a single application. The core code is a message classifier, however there are several applications available as part of the SpamBayes project which use the classifier in specific contexts. For the most part, the current crop of applications all operate on the client side of things, however, a number of people have experimented with using SpamBayes on mail servers to classify incoming mail for multiple users. The table below outlines the main applications which are part of the SpamBayes distribution.

http://spambayes.sourceforge.net/

SpamItBack 1.023

Tired of receiving spam? Wouldn't it be nice if spammers didn't send spam any more?

Get spammers back, and send your own message once, a thousand times, or as many times as you want back to them. And get a hi-score at the same time.

http://www.spamitback.com/

Spamihilator 0.9.8.4

Spamihilator works between your E-Mail client and the Internet and examines every incoming E-Mail. Useless spam mails (Junk) will be filtered out. This process runs completely in the background.

The new Learning Filter (Bayesian Filter) uses the rules of Thomas Bayes (English mathematician, 18th century) and calculates a certain Spam-Probability for every E-Mail. You can train this filter! So it will know your messages even better than you. Hence the recognition rate will continuously increase. In addition Spamihilator uses a Word-Filter, that searches messages for known keywords.

The program works with almost every E-Mail client, such as Outlook 2000/XP/2003/Express, Eudora, Mozilla, Netscape, IncrediMail, Pegasus Mail, Phoenix Mail, Opera, etc...

http://www.spamihilator.com/

Lockspam Free 3.0

Lockspam Free 3.0 is a free email anti spam filter for all POP3 mail clients, like Outlook, Outlook Express and Eudora. Especially, it could be seamlessly integrated into Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express to stop spam from pouring into your mailbox.

http://www.polesoft.com/

Cactus Spam Filter v1.13

Cactus Spam Filter is a free easy-to-use spam blocker. It protects your inbox by learning to detect spam as it's being used. After a short while it has adapted to your personal mailbox and blocks out most of the junk e-mail. Since the filter becomes personal, spammers will not be able to fool it.

Even though this is a brutal, merciless spam killer, no e-mails will get lost unless you delete them. Installation is very simple. No setup is required in your e-mail client; this spam stopper integrates seamlessly with all e-mail clients that use POP3. It has been successfully tested with Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express, Netscape, Opera, Mozilla, Eudora, Pegasus Mail, IncrediMail, Foxmail and Phoenix Mail.

SpamPal v1.583

- Check your mail against the freely-usable DNSBL lists (aka "blocking lists") of your choice.
- The list of available DNSBL services is automatically updated, so new DNSBL lists can be used as they appear!
- Whitelist the email addresses of your friends and family so that mail from them will never be tagged as spam!
- Don't agree with a listing in a DNSBL list? You can whitelist entire netblocks so you'll never be troubled by that listing again!
- Do you think part of the Internet should be blocked that isn't in a DNSBL list? Add it to the local blacklist and all mail from it will be tagged as spam! You can blacklist email addresses or entire netblocks!
- People and mailservers with whom you correspond frequently are Automatically Whitelisted - without you having to lift a finger!
- More than one mailbox? Don't worry, SpamPal supports multiple POP3 servers.
- Supports APOP authentication!
- Can filter IMAP4 mailboxes!
- Can even protect an SMTP connection!
- Unobtrusive! Once installed, SpamPal sits in your system tray and you can forget all about it - except spam won't be causing you so much trouble!
- Multi-language support! Use SpamPal in English, German, French, Italian or Russian
- Subject Line Tagging. As well as its special header, SpamPal can put "**SPAM**" in the subject of spam messages.
- And if all this isn't enough, you can extend SpamPal with third-party Plug-ins!
- SpamPal will not be able to detect all of your spam. However, I think it will detect enough to make a considerable difference!

SpamBuster 1.10.2


Run Spam Buster before your email program as the first line of defense against the junk. Spam Buster compares the email message, header information, sender, and size to the spam settings you've defined to see if the message is spam. Then Spam Buster even checks the sender against a blacklist of known spammers.

Spam Buster displays the email with a red checkmark indicating they are spam, a question mark if the mail appears to be spam, and those on the exception list (such as your friends) with a special icon. Should you decide that some of the messages not marked with a red check mark are spam, you can flag them for future spam detection. Of course you can unmark any message marked as spam too. Then launch your email program to retrieve and read the "clean" email. Since Spam Buster does NOT download the entire message it is much quicker than using your normal email program which will actually have to retrieve the entire message including any attachments.

TWI has lots of wonderful features. With it, you can:
  • Assign hotkeys for common tasks such as minimize windows, restart Windows, etc.
  • Automatically change your system's sound-effect files every few minutes or every few seconds if you want!
  • Minimize programs onto the taskbar tray instead of just onto the taskbar, either by a keystroke or by right-clicking a window's Minimize button with your mouse
  • Configure a menu of easily-accessible commands
  • Increase or decrease speaker volume with the press of a button
  • Automatically run programs at start-up, and hide them, minimize them to the taskbar tray, etc.
  • Lots more!
  • Oh yeah, and it's free!
