  • SpamAssassin
    SpamAssassin is a mail filter to identify spam using text analysis. Using its rule base, it uses a wide range of heuristic tests on mail headers and body text to identify "spam".

Anti-spam tests and configuration are stored in plain text, making it easy to configure and add new rules. SpamAssassin encapsulates its logic in a well-designed, abstract API so it can be integrated anywhere in the email stream. The Mail::SpamAssassin classes can be used on a wide variety of email systems including procmail, sendmail, Postfix, qmail, and many others. Read more hot
