SpamWeed Review

You know, I rarely do Anti-Spam product reviews. But I've just came across this software called SpamWeed, so I figured what the hell. Time to do a SpamWeed Review. :)

So yeah, anyway, I spent some time looking over SpamWeed, and I must say, I'm pretty impressed with SpamWeed.

Basically, SpamWeed works with Microsoft Outlook, Thunderbird, Eudora, Incredibmail, and all POP3 E-mail clients. So if you use any of those programs then you can definitely use SpamWeed.

Honestly, I'm not exactly sure how to describe SpamWeed. But basically, it helps reduce the amount of spam you receive. SpamWeed does this many different ways. For instance, I noticed there are multiple filters you can use for your incoming e-mail. You can filter out e-mails in other languages, filter out e-mails containing certain keywords, filter out e-mails from certain addresses, etc. It's pretty cool.

A couple other things worth pointing out is SpamWeed also tries to identify e-mails that may have potential viruses, so in a way, it also helps in preventing virus infections. Considering how into Computer Security I am, I like that feature. :-D

Overall though my favorite feature of SpamWeed is the feature I mentioned earlier about filtering out e-mails with certain keywords. Seriously, think of how many spam e-mails you get about viagra, sex, etc. Just add those keywords to the filter list, and those spam e-mails are all filtered out just like that. That's quite a time saver.

Anyway, in conclusion I really like SpamWeed and I definitely recommend it if you are having problems with spam and you use Microsoft Outlook or any of the other programs that SpamWeed supports. Good luck!
