Received unsolicited email from RSWarren.com?
Die, Spam, Die.
There are plenty of so-called marketing techniques that I find completely
abhorrent, but I reserve a special spot of personal hatred for those people
out there who indulge in mass unsolicited sales email. At this writing
(June 2004), I receive roughly 500 spam emails per day, and the number is
only growing with time. I therefore feel compelled to share what I've
learned fighting the great and holy battle against spam.
Keep checking back - I plan to build up this page over time.
Perl Mail Grabber (PMG)
This is a Perl script I began writing in 2001 when I first started looking
for a solid spam solution and could find none. I use this program to download
and sort all my business and personal email; to date it averages (at least
for me) about a
98-99% successful spam identification rate. Currently PMG uses a combined
whitelist/blacklist system along with conditional content analysis;
I plan to incorporate basic
Baysian modeling and more sophisticated configuration options in future
Sorry, Windows users: Linux/UNIX only.
PMG v2.0: Perl script for downloading POP3 email.
Supports advanced mailbox routing and reasonable spam blocking.
Latest version. (UNIX/Linux and Perl 5+ required)
