Pacific Online has tested the program SpamPal. It is freeware and is for WindowsTM machines only - for more information you can visit their website at: www.spampal.us or the UK mirrored site at www.spampal.org.uk

This program does help eliminate SPAM - we tested it for a month and kept careful records of how much SPAM was eliminated each day. We noticed that the numbers of SPAM caught each day increased - possibly as SPAMMERS sold the email addresses. 


SpamPal with Manual (786k)

SpamPal without Manual (294k)
