REQ: A Good Bayesian Mail Filter for use with Eudora

  • 1. Hide Trash folder ?
    Is it possible to hide the Trash folder in the panel ? Because if I drag messages from the Trash folder to folder next to it, and accidently drop the messages in the Trash, they are really trashed :-(
  • 2. Trouble with signatures
    I have a basic Eudora account and one sub-account. But I can't get signatures to work in either one. I have set up two signatures, via Tools/Signatures/new and entering the words I want (just two names in each) but when I click on the File menu to Save, there is no Save button, only Save As which puts it somewhere else than Eudora. This may be the problem. When I go back to Tools/Personalities and try to associate the signature with each personality, it seems to work. In a new message the signature selecton box shows a choice of either signature but no matter which one I select nothing appears at the end of the message. Help?

Spam is getting out of control.  I use Mailwasher Pro, but I'm looking
for something more powerful.  Does anyone have something they'd
recommend?

I've had very good results with the free
open-source tool "POPFile."  Info --
 http://www.**--****.com/ 

It acts as a POP proxy for Eudora, examining
emails as they are downloaded, but before Eudora
gets to apply filters or place messages in
mailboxes.  Since it opens the messages, my
anti virus tool gets a chance to look at them,
too.  ;-)

Eudora 6.0 appears to have a well-designed
integrated spam filter, judging from the
docs at  http://www.**--****.com/ 
I have not tried it out, just making judge-
ments on the docs.  Note -- Eudora 6.0 SpamWatch
is only available on the paid version, not
Sponsored or Lite versions.

If interested in POPfile, don't let the web
pages discourage you.  It is not hard to download
or configure.  Just download from -- (may wrap)
 http://www.**--****.com/ 

and configure with instructions from --
C:\Program Files\POPFile\manual\en\manual.html
Step 3 has Eudora-specific config instructions.

I absolutely *love* Spamnix, a pre-screening plug-in for Eudora.

It now has Bayesian training.

I'm scoring 100% on spam with *no* falses!

POPFile is great. Plus it lets you use multiple buckets/classifications
for email


You can still use POPFile in front of it, and it works very well

With Eudora v6, on my system at least, Spamnix is superfluous - maybe 
one message a week (out of thousands) goes in the SN mailbox.

BUT!!! I have to have Spamnix on my system (disabled is OK) in order for 
Eudora not to notify me of incoming junk mails. I've reported it and 
tried uninstalling SN but no joy.

Very weird and I don't like it but the work around is better than the 
annoying junk-only mail calls.  8(

I've used both Popfile ( http://www.**--****.com/ )  and K9
( http://www.**--****.com/ ) with Eudora.  Both are free.

I prefer K9's whitelist and gui interface.

4.Bayesian Spam Filters for OE

Does anyone have experience with a Bayesian spam filter for OE?  One which 
integrates into OE rather than having a separate user interface?

I've used PopFile, and liked it, but it's too twitchy and requires too much 
knowledge from the user for me to install it for someone who's not a geek.  
Personally I love watching the weighting factors it comes up with, etc., but 
that's not for every taste.  

Basically I'm looking for the PopFile functionality, but built into the OE 
interface rather than running on the side.  Something perhaps which simply 
adds two buttons to OE for you to tell it whether a particular message is 
spam or not. 

Thanks....
