[REBOL] Cerebrus update
From: gchiu:compkarori at: 26-Feb-2003 15:14
I've built the experimental version 1.3.0 with the SDK and
this is available at
I'm hoping that there are no major bugs introduced and
since the SDK has read/lines fixed, it should be quicker
now in downloading email.
Using Cerebrus will always be slower than using your email
client, but the time saved in cleaning your email up if
you get a lot of spam will more than make up for it.
Apart from using the SDK for this build, there are the
1. Email sent from a mail server that lacks a DNS record
will now always be flagged as spam unless the sender is in
your allowed lists.
2. You no longer need the network.txt file, and a new
installation does not drop to the console to build the
network.txt file. The network settings are set up in the
GUI configuration screen. And of course you can enter
them in the email dialect.
3. Cerebrus will now backup the configuration file, and
numbers them sequentially, before saving any new changes.
Nearly losing the banned server list of several hundred
spam server IP addresses was the incentive for this
4. Your statistics of spam vs ham are posted to the
Compkarori/cerebrus site, and can be turned off in the
setting ie. sendstatistics
You can see my spam/ham statistics at
and if you have a static ip address, you can see your own
This doesn't tell you about accuracy, just the ratio of
your email which is ham/spam.
The funny looking icon at the top left is where I'm
supposed to load an icon image :(
