Best antispam tool!

After a frustrating distributed mailbomb that I was hard-pressed to find a pattern in, I decided to get a Bayesian spam filter to clean up the mess. I read about many of them and experimented several, including Spam Bully and some others. Most of them were very bad, crashed, or were incapable of learning about this complex mailbomb. By far and away K9 was the best. It works, it doesn't screw up, it learns very fast, and has a 99.5% accuracy after a few days of training. The training process is simple, and the program is free. The developer, Robin Keir, is busy a lot, so if you have any questions, feel free to post them or email me.

Note: this doesn't work on a Yahoo or Hotmail account.

Please download it, install it, and get your email back under control. Why do I care? Because the Internet only works if everyone likes it. Which is probably the same reason why Robin wrote it.
