What about errors? No spam filter is 100% perfect, but SPAMfighter is the most reliable.

  1. Spamfighter is dangerous. It blocks email from healthcare organizations. It blocks emails from health insurance organizations. It blocks email from .gov domains, which means that there is no in-house competence. It also means that important information about disability benefits, etc. will be blocked as well. It blocks financial institutions. The only reason people think it works well is that they try to improve their test scores by blocking tons of legitimate email. I have more than 20 years experience in the computer security industry. I offered to help them create an extensive white list of good domains, but they never respond. Yes, all spam filters false positive sometimes, but SPAMfighter does frequently and on domains that any slightly competent developer would have whitelisted.
    This is too dangerous to recommend. That’s a shame. They don’t even try for quality.

    • Randy,

      I’ve used Spamfighter for around 3-years and have experienced similar results. Do you have any recommendations?

      Thanks,

  3. I had SpamFighter for a year and finally uninstalled it. It doesn’t have a Bayesian filter so it’s limited in it’s filtering. I found that in spite of adding annoying spam sites to its list, I still kept receiving them. Support is non-existent so I eighty-sixed them. I’m evaluating MailWasher pro.
