Mailfilter is a flexible utility for Unix (-like) operating systems to get rid of unwanted spam mails, before having to go through the trouble of downloading them into the local computer. It offers support for one or many POP accounts and is especially useful for dialup connections via modem, ISDN, etc.
Mailfilter connects to any POP mail box and compares part of its content to a set of user defined filter rules. That way the spam gets deleted directly on the mail server.
With Mailfilter you can define your own filters (rules) to determine which e-mails should be delivered and which are considered waste. Rules are regular expressions, so you can make use of familiar options from other mail delivery programs such as e.g. procmail.
Mailfilter is released under the terms of the GNU General Public
License. For more information, see the README and COPYING documents provided
with the Mailfilter program.
Oct-26-2003: Released 0.6 - Stable Version
Current version 1.0rc1
SaveMyModem is a anti-spam, mail-shaper, delete-on-server software thought
for users who have a dialup connection and are sick and tired of downloading
1MB a day of spam and Win32-worm-attached messages. Since now it supports
only pop3 accounts, and smtp accounts for complaining.
There are some other delete-on-server mail-filter programs, like mailfilter, but I've not found one with all these functions:
It deletes spams from POP server. You have to rely on other MTA (e.g., fetchmail, etc) to fetch what are left.
Allowed variables are:
SUBJECT SIZE SENDER TO CC HEAD BODY.
No "Any-Sender", which could be
"From:", "Apparently-From:", "Sender:", "Reply-To:", "X-Sender:", "Envelope-From:" and "X-Envelope-From:":
load() Any-Sender: "firstname.lastname@example.org" -@Subject:"You are fired!"
Neither have "Any-Recipient", which could be "To:", "Apparently-To:", "CC:", "BCC:", "Envelope-To:", "X-Envelope-To:", "Original-Recipient:", "X-Resent-For:", "X-Resent-To:" and "Resent-To:".
No way to work on other headers. So there is no way to take advantage of headers from SpamAssassin, or construct rule like from_daemon in procmail.
Allowed ruletype are :
ALLOW DENY DOUBT
All the plugins are packed with smm.
* Inspector: Regular expression based checks. * Yahoopops: Start/Stop Yahoopops with one click. * Dummy: A stupid but bug free plugin. That's true. Belive me! * Rblcheck: Checks if the sender of the message is a spammer using blacklists. * Pop3: Interface between smm and a pop3 server. * Spamassassin: Checks the partially downloaded mail with SpamAssassin
* open source development: open source is a great thing, but is hard to keep control over a software made by a lot of people. Usually the open source development process is "anarchic", but since this software is firstly made by me, I'd like to keep control over it; in simple words I want to look at all the code. I love when someone sends me patches, and I hate when I send someone my patches and he integrates them totally changing them. So plugins are a good way to allow people to expand the software, writing code in theyr own way, without making me mad to find what they have changed. * stability: smm is 15861 lines (version 1.0rc1): o ~ 27% is real smm code. o ~ 17% is glade code. o ~ 21% is smm_libs code. o ~ 33% is plugin code. ~ 21% of the code is well tested since smm_libs is old code used in other applications, ~ 17% is made by glade that is probably better than me in writing gtk code. The real smm is only 4405 lines! Some plugins integrate code made by glade. Each plugin is small and easy to test. You don't need to use all plugins. You surely know that a small software is probably more stable than a big one, and a software achitecture like this one is not the usual hell. * new features: With a plugin you can add new features without changing smm core code, and you can use your own language (the only requested thing is a simple C interface, nobody cares if the plugin calls an external python/perl/ocaml/C++/... software). * fun: I write software for fun, and I've never used plugins before smm. So it is interesting to me.
Multithreaded mail download speeds up the download process since it connects
simultaneously to all your pop3 accounts. This avoids big network latencies,
like hostname resolution via DNS or connection to an hi-loaded server. Under
Linux this approach makes possible to redraw the guy during the download
process, and this cuts out the annoying guy freeze. Under windows this is
not possible because of a "conflict" between gtk and threads, so the GUI may
freeze, but the download speed is increased.
SpamAssassin is probably the best way to protect yourself from spam. Smm can use the powerful spamassassin engine on the partially downloaded messages. Yes! You can check your mail with spamassassin without downloading the whole message. With this plugin smm adds to its ligthweigth bandwidth usage the power of spamassassin! Enjoy.
Popsneaker is a mailfilter for remote filtering of POP3 email accounts. It
is useful for computers which have a dial-in connection to the internet. You
can define rules to select emails, which you don't want to download to your
local host. This is a simple and effective way to get rid of spam,
advertisings and other kinds of unwanted mail. The filter rules are very
flexible and powerful, but still easy to handle. The main ruletypes are
using regular expressions to deny, to accept or to make an assumption on the
DisSpam is a personal solution to combat unwanted email (i.e. not for mail servers/ISPs). It is a Perl script that accesses POP3 mailboxes and can block/forward mail based on SpamAssassin, built-in blacklist (RBL) checks, or configurable expression matches. It can be run through a variety of ways, including cron, and uses a very simple yet versatile configuration file.
'lpopr' was built to retrieve mail from one or more POP3 servers and deliver them locally or to a specified host. It thus has a much smaller scope than Eric Raymond's fetchmail, but after running into problems with fetchmail repeatedly, I decided to code my own solution (well, to be honest, any excuse is good enough to do a little programming:-).
For good measure I added support for a spam filter to delete unwanted mail before downloading it. The decision what to delete can be based on the mail headers as well as on the size of the mail (ever had a 4meg mail on the other side of your modem?).
AntiSpam will detect SPAM and remove it from your Incoming folder. AntiSpam2 has a appr. hit rate of >70% . Because it`s more or less self-learning each new SPAM added to the internet database @ BenderIRC.de will increase the Hitaccurance step by step. A more advanced algorithm is possible, so it may be better in the future.
