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 IMO people are the best spam recognizer, much better than any algorithm. Of course I would like to see a Rebol based version ;-). If the filtering engine would work standalone and transparent on the server, where the mail-server is running as well, this would be perfect :-)) -- Robert M.
