Hi Dide, thanks a lot for this tool. Very handy! I'm now using it to
filter out those damnd 150KB messages about the MS Update.
WRT to automatically select spam mails, I want to suggest a very simple
but most effective approach: Let people mark messages as spam and collect
a MD5 checksum on a central server. Than your tool can perform a check
against the server to see if others already reported the mail as spam. You
can get more information about such a concept from
http://www.cloudmark.com IMO people are the best spam recognizer, much
better than any algorithm. Of course I would like to see a Rebol based
If the filtering engine would work standalone and transparent on the
server, where the mail-server is running as well, this would be perfect
