Spam Tools that Work

At our September 2002 meeting, Barb Dijker of Netrack talked about her experience with anti-spam tools that work, focusing on SpamAssassin. Barb covered using SpamAssassin integrated with procmail and through the milter mechanism in sendmail, settling on the procmail approach as the less troublesome way to use the software.

There was a lively discussion of other approaches to filtering spam, including using black hole lists and spam checksum databases. Barb's slides are available here (HTML, 103K PDF).
