InboxCleaner is a small
utility that connects to your POP mailbox and verifies your mail messages. Mail
messages that are identified as SPAM are deleted before you download them with
your normal mail application. This prevents you from downloading SPAM and
clogging up your mailbox. But not only SPAM will be stopped, but also harmful
Viruses and Worms will be identified and deleted before you download them.
InboxCleaner protects your
Inbox through three SPAM detection algorithms:
… based on the
sender e-mail address
The e-mail address to search for may be entered as Name (IE "Shopper's
voice") or as e-mail address (IE "email@example.com"). You
may also enter only part of an e-mail address (IE "@directmarketing.com")
to stop all e-mails from this server.
A lot of SPAM is sent by always the same e-mail address, hence if InboxCleaner detects a message sent by one of these e-mail addresses it will delete the message.

Most of SPAM can also be identified through its message content. Phrases like “You were sent this email because you used our Opt-in service.” are indications that this e-mail was sent to you unsolicited, hence InboxCleaner will delete them. The content based algorithm will download the first 100 lines of a message , in order to verify its content.
All three detection algorithm work with databases of
well known strings. Those databases are updated regularly at MAW, so whenever
you choose the update menu option the latest version will be installed,
protecting you against le latest SPAM messages.
You have also the possibility to download the latest databases through the "Download" button on the settings menu.
