It works by checking with databases of SpamCop and others, plus any
E-Mail name or domain name you want to blacklist. It also tells you
that some messages are infected. It logs on to your mail server at a
preset interval, checks for messages, then lets you know if there are
new messages. You click on the icon and see a list of messages, and if
there is nothing you want to read click on the ones that aren't marked
Blacklisted can be added to you list, or just click the "Delete" and/or
the "Bounce Message" box, then click on "Process mail" If you have any
mail you kept it will open your default mail reader and allow you to
download the messages.
You can double click the message to see a preview in test only, to
see who a message is from, or if you should add it to your blacklists.
It has cut my spam down from several hundred a day to just a handful of
persistent morons who won't give up.
So, basically you and other people decide what is spam, not some
