Community-based spam filtering uses the power of thousands of users to fight the spam mails. When enough community members mark a message as spam, nobody else in the community has to look at that same junk mail. SPAMfighter implements this technique effectively.
SPAMfighter is also powered by a community of over 8 million users and allows you to contribute to the war against spam. When several people report the same spam mail, it is automatically blocked for the rest of the SPAMfighter community. SPAMfighter supports Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail, Live Mail (POP3), and Mozilla Thunderbird.
