Mac Spam filters
Well back to work. The ACL tear sure hurt for three weeks and I have to admit I was completely zonked out. Amazing what I spewed on this blog, so I take it all back. Now that I’m back with 1,000 email messages, this whole spam thing has taken on a new urgency. I’ve been using an iMac as my main machine and Entourage for accessing Exchange. The base spam filter in it doesn’t seem to work worth a darn, so I’m off to search for add-ons. There aren’t many for the Mac. Here are some observations.
* Mac Mail. The mail that comes with jaguar actually has a Bayesian spam filter in it. It reads IMAP which is great but not the rest of Exchange so to use it I’d have to use Entourage for calendar and contacts and Mac mail for the rest. A nice UI though as usual.
