What is Spamihilator?

Spamihilator works between your E-Mail client and the Internet and examines every incoming E-Mail. Useless spam mails (Junk) will be filtered out. This process runs completely in the background.

The Learning Filter (Bayesian Filter) uses the rules of Thomas Bayes (English mathematician, 18th century) and calculates a certain Spam-Probability for every E-Mail. You can train this filter! So it will know your messages even better than you. Hence the recognition rate will continuously increase.

Spamihilator screenshotIn addition Spamihilator uses a Word-Filter, that searches messages for known keywords. User-defined words and regular expression can be added.

Of course, Spamihilator supports Plugins. These useful additional filters protect your system against annoying spam mails.

The program works with almost every E-Mail client, such as Outlook 2000/­XP/­2003/­Express, Eudora, Mozilla Thunderbird, IncrediMail, Pegasus Mail, Phoenix Mail, Opera, etc…

Spam Recognition

Spam Recognition

The Learning Filter recognizes more than 98% of all incoming spam mails. Use the Training Area, to increase the recognition rate continuously.

You can also specify certain words, that often appear in spam mails. The Spam-Word-Filter will look for these words.(1)

There’s yet another highlight: The new Link Filter searches incoming messages for links to spam websites.

Finally, Spamihilator contains the DCC-Filter which connects with the DCC Network to recognize unsolicited bulk mail.

Install Plugins to increase Spamihilator’s recognition rate even more! Plugins add new features and filters to the program.

(1) The Spam Word Filter even supports Regular Expressions.

Support of POP3 and IMAP accounts

Support of POP3 and IMAP accounts

Since version 0.9.9 Spamihilator is able to receive e-mails from POP3 and IMAP accounts!

Furthermore the new version supports Cross-Protocolling. Hence, it is possible to receive e-mails from IMAP accounts with an e-mail client, that supports only POP3, and vice versa (see Cross-Protocolling Setup)

Secure Connections (2)

Secure Connections (2)

Spamihilator is able to establish secure connections over SSL/TLS (3). The communication between Spamihilator and the mail server will be encrypted, so no one can read your e-mails or spy out your passwords.

(2) Please note: You cannot use this feature unless your mail server also supports secure connections over SSL/TLS.
(3) This product includes software developed by the OpenSSL Project for use in the OpenSSL Toolkit. (

Lists of Senders

Lists of Senders

Add your buddys’ mail addresses to the List of Friends. Spamihilator will render all messages from these senders to your mail client.

Messages from senders, which are listed on the List of Blocked senders, will always be blocked. Spamihilator is even able to delete such messages directly on the mail server without downloading them! (optional)

Separate Spam and Non-Spam!

Separate Spam and Non-Spam!

All recognized spam mails will be saved to the Spamihilator Recycle Bin. They will not be rendered to your mail client. Ideally you don’t even have to check the Recycle Bin, so a best possible separation between Spam and Non-Spam can be achieved!
Of course, you can restore messages from the Recycle Bin.

Use the Training Area to teach Spamihilator. It will learn which mails are Spam and which are not. It will become better and better! After a few days of training the recognition rate will be at least 98%!



Actually, Spamihilator runs with all mail clients that support POP3.
Of course, there is a Setup-Wizard, which automatically configures your mail client.(4)

Spamihilator is available with several translations and has got a comprehensive Online Help. Furthermore the program lets you know when there is a new version available.

(4) Tested with Microsoft Outlook Express/2000/XP/2003, Opera, Eudora, Pegasus Mail, Phoenix Mail, Netscape/Mozilla und IncrediMail.
