Philosophy: Spam Protection - A Real Solution
SpamButcher was created to provide simple and effective spam protection software for end users.
Its intent is to eliminate the vast majority of spam without requiring training or other maintenance from the end user. This is in stark contrast to other spam protection programs which can require extensive training or filter adjustments before operating with any efficiency.
Additionally, users shouldn't have to pay for spam filter updates or other service fees to keep their inbox protected from junk email.
SpamButcher uses fuzzy logic to analyze messages for content popular with spammers. Its underlying database was created by automated and hand analysis of hundreds of thousand of spam and legitimate e-mails.
As a result, SpamButcher can provide superior spam protection "out of the box" - whether used for business spam filtering, or by home users. While users can define custom filters, whitelists and blacklists - they generally shouldn't need to in order to get good performance blocking unsolicited mail.
SpamButcher operates as a stand alone spam protection application. This offers the advantage of not being tied to a single email client. SpamButcher works comparably well protecting users from spam acting as an Outlook spam blocker, Outlook Express spam filter, or used with Eudora, Netscape or any other POP3 compatible e-mail client.
SpamButcher works well for both home users and as a business spam filtering solution.
Legislative spam email protection efforts are not proving to be effective. A high quality spam filter is the most practical way for end-users to bring an end to spam.
