Spam is the scourge of the Internet. Almost every Internet user receives spam: undesired e-mail messages selling products and services, messages suggesting that users visit certain web sites, often pornographic, and scams of all kinds. Some people get so much spam that they spend more time sorting their in-boxes than they do reading legitimate e-mail.

Intego Personal Antispam X4 is the ultimate tool to fight spam for Mac OS X. Intego Personal Antispam X4 analyzes your incoming e-mail, determining which messages are spam and which are valid messages, in many ways: by checking a whitelist of addresses, message content, message layout, URLs in messages, and much more.

Unlike the spam filters provided with e-mail programs such as Apple Mail or Microsoft Entourage, Intego Personal Antispam X4 is intelligent. When you first install Intego Personal Antispam X4, its performance is similar to the filters included with e-mail programs, but as you use it more and more, having the program learn from your spam and from your good e-mail, Intego Personal Antispam X4 outperforms any spam filter available.

I had trouble downloading this. First I had to pay without being offered the option of a free trial. Then the download didn't work, and I had to complaint to customer support.

I had to uninstall Personal Antispam as it was systematically tagging my legitimate email as spam and never flagging a single spam email! A complete disaster.

Also, the interface and install are completely out of date and it was noticeably slowing down my Mail and Entourage.

Best antispam application on the market - if you are tired of having 1 relevant e-mail out of 20, then this is the right application for you. And I never had any trouble with important e-mails getting trashed!
