POPFile is an automatic mail classification tool. Once properly set up and trained, it will scan all email as it arrives and classify it based on your training. You can give it a simple job, like separating out junk e-mail, or a complicated one-like filing mail into a dozen folders. Think of it as a personal assistant for your inbox.

POPFile classifies email into categories you define. It can sort into spam and not spam or into any number of categories you like (e.g. work, personal, important project, hobby, etc.). The classification is done using a naïve Bayes algorithm. In other words, POPFile uses statistics to track which words are likely to appear in which messages. This means that POPFile will adapt to the kind of mail you receive and needs to be trained. Out of the box, it doesn’t know anything about spam or how messages from your mother differ from those your friends send you. However, if you train it, it will soon learn how to tell these different kinds of messages apart. POPFile was created by John Graham-Cumming and is maintained as open source by a team of developers and users that file bug reports, post patches, and suggest enhancements.

The program uses Bayesian classification, which is highly effective an learns from your instructions. Overall, POPfile provides great flexibility and accurate filtering, however it does require at least some basic understanding of email and POP accounts in order to use it effectively.

Spamihilator works between your email client and the Internet and examines every incoming message. Useless and unsolicited spam mails (junk) will be filtered out. This process runs completely in the background. Spamihilator uses a number of different filters in order to achieve the highest spam recognition rate possible. The program is highly configurable and can be extended by plugins.

Spamihilator uses a number of different filters in order to achieve the highest spam recognition rate possible. The Learning Filter (Bayesian Filter) uses the rules of Thomas Bayes (English mathematician, 18th century) and calculates a certain spam probability for every email. Therefore the Learning Filter already recognizes more than 98% of spam mails. You can even train this filter! So it will know your messages even better than you. Additionally, Spamihilator contains the Spam Word Filter that searches messages for known keywords. User-defined words and regular expression can be added. Besides, Spamihilator contains the Link Filter, the DCC Filter and the Rule Filter. All of them can be configured to your personal needs.
