SPAMfighter: Spam filter for Microsoft Outlook, Live Mail and Thunderbird [Pro License Giveaway]

SPAMfighter is a spam fighting tool that works in conjunction with Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Live Mail and Mozilla Thunderbird, and helps you to keep spam and phishing mails at bay.

A lot of anti-spam products rely on filters and other rule based technologies, but spammers work every day to stay out of these filters. A filter that works one day might not work the next day. SPAMfighter keeps you one step ahead of the spammers by leveraging the spam detecting ability of thousands of computer users. That’s right, SPAMfighter is another spam filter that is powered by the community.


If a SPAMfighter user receives a spam mail that is not detected by SPAMfighter, the user reports the spam mail with one click. When several people have reported the same spam mail, it's automatically filtered for the rest of the community. In this way very few people in the community will ever see the spam mail. On top of that a lot of spam is filtered automatically before it ever hits the community.

SPAMfighter’s sits on the system tray and monitors in real time all mail downloaded by the supported email clients for all accounts. The program’s configuration window can be opened from the system tray icon from within the mail client. Configuration options includes a whitelist and a backlist, spam filter sensitivity and language recognition.


The whitelist and blacklist lets you allow or block mails from specific email addresses. SPAMfighter automatically adds addresses in your mail clients’ contact list to the whitelist. There is also a provision to import them from your mail client or from a text file. Of course, you can also enter them one at a time.

The filter sensitivity offers 5 levels of filtering from the very soft to very hard. The hard and very hard filter levels can stop most email marketing mails and newsletters even the ones you have voluntarily signed up to.

The language recognition feature allows you to filter mails written in specific language. This is very useful to remove spam in foreign languages which the filters might not be able to detect.

SPAMfighter is available in two editions – Standard and Pro. The Standard edition is free to use but also comes with certain restrictions like limited number of entries in whitelist/blocklist, no language filtering and a SPAMfighter footer in your outgoing messages. The Standard license is also prohibited from use in commercial organization. These restrictions are absent in the Pro license but they also set you back by $29.

The Standard edition allows you to test the Pro features for 30 days after which, the limitations come into effect.
