Once you tell SpamEater Pro where your ISP's mail server is, and your login information, SpamEater will connect with the server, either on a timed basis, or manually as you desire, and check the messages on the server for spam, removing any found and, optionally, archiving locally.
There are a number of fully configurable checks that are performed on the messages. These range from checks to see if the message is from one of your defined Approved Senders, a blocked sender, from a blocked country code, checking to see if the server that delivered the message is in one of any number of internet blacklist databases, server authorization checks with SPF (NEW!), to a virtually unlimited number of powerful filter rules that we provide and update for you - and you can create your own too.
If a message is determined to be spam, or fails any of the defined checks, it can be silently deleted from the server, bounced back to the sender (NEW in v4), archived locally and deleted from the server, and/or easy cut-n-paste to SpamCop web forms for complaint generation to the sender's and advertiser's ISPs - you decide!
Is your ISP already filtering email for you (Spaminator, MessageWall, SpamAssassin, etc)? Don't let them decide which email messages you get and which you don't!

Here are some highlights of features you'll find in SpamEater Pro 4:
SpamEater Pro includes a powerful and flexible set of filter rules to help block even the most persistent spammers. There's even a user friendly interface for you to enter your own rules to the many that come with SpamEater Pro! Easy online updates are also included! Filter types include message subject, header fields, bodies, blocked senders, message sizes, country codes (NEW in v4.0), and more. Rules can be set to reject and delete messages, flag messages, or to always accept specific messages.
SPF (Sender Policy Framework): NEW in 4.1.0!
SPF is a means that domain owners can use to tell the rest of the mail servers on the Internet which servers are authorized to send mail for a specific domain. SpamEater Pro can check this, on domains that are using it, to be sure the message is not forged as being from such domains.
Setup a list of your friends email addresses and SpamEater Pro will always accept their messages. You can even import these addresses from your supported Address Book - currently included are Outlook, Outlook Express, Netscape, and Eudora, among others.
Real-time Internet Blacklist support:
There are a number of dynamic Blacklists available today on the Internet. Many of these are free for personal use. The Blacklists databases contain dynamic lists of known spammers, spam-friendly ISPs, dial-up users, open relays, etc. SpamEater Pro can query these databases real-time! SpamEater Pro comes setup and ready to use with popular blacklists predefined, and you can add more as desired - no limit to the number allowed.
SpamEater Pro supports the majority of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) with support for the standard POP3 and SMTP protocols. SpamEater Pro now also supports the secure encrypted SSL versions (TLS) of these standard protocols with POP3S and SMTPS support! NEW in 4.1.0!
Flexible Scheduled Checks:
With SpamEater Pro 4, you can now set the same or separate schedules for automated checks. With these automated checks, you mailbox stays free of spam with little effort on your part! Simply set and forget!
Local Message Archive:
You can tell SpamEater Pro to download a copy of all rejected messages, on an account by account basis, and store them locally for later review. Messages in these archives can then be deleted, copied-n-pasted to SpamCop web form for complaint generation, bounced (NEW in v4), or recovered. SpamEater Pro can be set to automatically clean out old archived messages after a number of days that you specify.
SpamEater Pro supports all network connection types to the Internet and any other TCP/IP network. If you can successfully connect to the internet or your TCP/IP networks on your computer, then SpamEater Pro supports your connection!
