Users using Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail or Thunderbird might be well aware of spam – Junk Emails of commercial nature. It’s something that has become a constant menace for the computer users. If you would like to get rid of spam, I suggest you install SPAMfighter Standard. If you use it at home, i.e. for non-commercial purposes it’s 100% free.
Of late, SpamFighter has partnered up with Microsoft to build the strongest, safest, and most effective anti spam filter on the market. Here’s what the description on the official website reads as,
“Whenever new mail arrives, it will automatically be tested by SPAMfighter, and if it’s spam, it will be moved to your spam folder. If you receive a spam mail that is not detected, click a single button, and the spam mail is removed from the rest of the 8,309,757 SPAMfighters in 237 countries/areas in seconds.”
Using SPAMFighter pretty straightforward. Simply download the program from the official website and install it. The freeware perfectly integrates with Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail (POP3) and Thunderbird and is just capable of protecting all your email accounts.
The main window of SpamFighter provides access to Overview, Clients, Filters, Settings or Account sections.
Users interested in customizing the application’s behavior within the supported email software can do so freely by gaining access to the Clients section.
If you would like to configure SPAMFighter for Outlook you must open the configuration window from the email client. Locate the SpamFighter in the email client. Then, click on the drop down arrow of ‘More’ and choose ‘Options’.
If you would like to configure settings for language, software updates and other options you could easily do so via the ‘Settings’ tab.
