I think that you are talking about PopFile not PopMail and I am definately a convert. I was recenltly slammed with the last Win bug and PopFile was able to capture every email that came in. Do to a system upgrade I lost my training, but was able to retrain popfile to >95% accruacy in less than a week.

As a side note, you can also use popfile to organize your email. For example I have folders for family, Spam, newsgroups.

One other thing to be aware of concerning popfile. It classifies emails based on the email body as well as the headers, so altering the header does not fool it.

I would recommend it to any one interested in filtering email. It is also one of the non-CGI Perl programs I use to show people that perl is more than a CGI program.
