It was not long ago that email mailboxes full of junk mail and spam that threatened to make electronic communication useless. When you open your email you were bombarded with poorly written advertisements for $ ex, V! agra, and tons of other intentionally misspelled, designed to evade any spam blocking devices. Those interested in consumer protection knew the ultimate goal to eliminate and block spam, but as soon as you create a product designed to do just that, the spammers evaded their efforts to get more creative. That is, until the modern anti-spam software has been developed. Antispam software comes in a variety of ways, with the obvious intention of stopping last spam from reaching you.


One of the main anti-spam methods is known as blacklisting. This software identifies the IP address of the sender of spam, and communicates with the Internet service provider of the sender and instructs the ISP to block mail from the IP address to your email account. In theory, this is a foolproof solution. The reality, however, is that there are a lot of money to be made in spam, so forcing a spammer to change your IP address is often not too high a price to pay to avoid the blockade. That said, this practice is, over time, start closing the doors to all spammers and spammers, but eliminates fans who do not have the ability to change frequently in the execution.

Spam Votes

Many people who frequently use e-mail accounts are unfamiliar with this device. Spam voting runs through the participation of users. When you receive email that you have the option to classify as spam, usually by pressing a button that says, unsurprisingly, 'spam'. Once enough people classify a piece of mail as spam or IP falls in trust until it finally becomes completely blocked from addresses.


Profile involves learning the common characteristics of spammers and spam. It is software that looks for things like bugs, invalid message ID and other features and uses these characteristics to evaluate incoming mail pieces. Each piece of mail is given a score depending on how you do against these criteria. The user is given the option of how high or how low you set the bar in that emails are allowed to enter This method has proved highly effective against this type of amateur and many professional spammers. However, based on a team of professionals prepared to identify new features used by spammers and to incorporate these traits into the profiling algorithms.

Bayesian Filtering

The most promising spam blocking software does not follow the rules. On the contrary, constantly learning new techniques to fight spam by scanning the emails I've read, and comparing it with the mail that you have refused. This highly sophisticated software that gleans data used for thousands of users to identify items that are spam and which not. You then have the ability to adjust their standards to their preferences. Over time, experts becomes only sending emails to, and blocking emails that do not.
