SpamSieve 2.5 released

Developer Michael Tsai today released SpamSieve 2.5, an update to the Universal application that brings Bayesian spam filtering to Mac email clients. SpamSieve allows users to control the software from within an email client to customize how the program interacts with message sorting rules. Compatible email clients include Apple Mail, Emailer, Entourage, Eudora, GyazMail, Mailsmith, Outlook Express, and PowerMail. The latest revision includes changes to the parser and classifiers for improved accuracy, and enhances the in-memory corpus representation efficiency. The Software Update feature is rewritten to show release notes when a newer version is available, and SpamSieve 2.5 improves accuracy on messages containing misspelled words. The update is free for registered users, and requires Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later. SpamSieve is priced at $30 for new users.

    Helluva spam filter

    I've found this program indispensible. It makes a joke of Apple's spam filter in It is rare when Spamsieve doesn't mark a piece of spam as spam, and even more rare if it ever marked a good mail as spam. And this from someone who just gets 20-40 spams a day on all my accounts.
