Email anti spam compatible programs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Because someone has been using my email address for a return path on bulk emails, I am receiving a large number of Returned mail messages.  I need to know which anti-spam programs are compatible with Live OneCare and IE7.  I am aware you can not recommend any one program, but a list of 3 or 4 that I could choose from would be great.

  • It really depends on what email client you are using. The spam filter for Outlook 2003 and 2007 is actually quite good. If you are using Outlook Express or Outlook, you can try Cloudmark Spamnet - http://www.cloudmark.com

    Pretty much any antispam program should be fine with OneCare and IE7, as long as they don't also include other security features.

  • Thanks Steve,

     

    I am trying a program called SPAMfighter, that is Microsoft certified.  It has a 30 day trial full version.  So far it seems to be working OK.  There are a few blips every once in a while and I have contacted their support to resolve those issues.
