spam filter...

Hi guys,

I am thinking of writing an "intelligent" spam filter. I am using the netscape client to read my email, but  unfortunately, the email filters are very limited and unflexible. You know the spam problem is a real item now. I receive lots of email with words like vi@gra, víágrá, v_i_a_g_r_a, etc. The idea is to write some sort of little language to make a filter really powerful to catch all the variations (as in the viagra example). The problem of writing this kind of language I don't think is a big task...

So, my question is: how I can get the email messages of my inbox to check it with my intellgent spam filter (as soon I write it)... or to interact with the netscape mail client? I was thinking in reading the email messages directly from my account  before they go to my inbox in the netscape client.

Any ideas?

best regards

lopem,

There is a great article in Delphi Informant Magazine (Nov 2003).
"Junk Mail Solution" by Bill Todd.
"Using Outlook as an Automation Server to manage your unwanted E-Mail"

Its a must look at:

Go to

http://www.delphizine.com/features/2003/11/di200311bt_f/di200311bt_f.asp

If you are not a member, then you can create a trial membership, no monies required.

Its just a matter of editing it to your needs (Automating Netscape instead)

Hi, Shane,

I can't find the way to create a trial membership. I am not a delphi informant suscriber but I am looking with some friends if they have this article available... In the meantime, any link for the trial membership.

Thanks a lot. I guess this article can give me more knowledge about my question.
best regards,
Manuel Lopez (lopem)
