What is Junk Email?
Junk Email (or "Spam") is really any email received when it has not specifically been asked for. Usually it is advertising goods or services, but can sometimes carry harmful "viruses". Invariably, it is always something that you most likely didn't want to receive. Also, some of the material you receive may be considered offensive, ie: advertising that contains pornographic material and images.

All junk emails have a number of common qualities. For example, all junk email will encourage the reader to visit a specific website for more information. In order to do this, the junk mail message has to contain a link to another site. ALL junk email does this one basic thing! For the most part, your friends do not, as a rule, send emails containing links. Junkanoo will automatically identify emails containing links and mark them as junk. This is just one type of filter effectively used by Junkanoo.

Bayesian Filters
When I first started to write this program, I intended to use Bayesian filters to check for junk mail. Bayesian filters use a statistical approach to analyzing email in order to determine if it is junk. And it's very effective. However, as I started to write some of the more easy-to-use filters, I found that I was catching about 98% of junk mail already. With a few more tweaks, the percentage got even better. So I've not included a Bayesian filter in this version of Junkanoo.

White Lists
I would encourage you to use White Lists where possible. Particularly if you subscribe to a number of newsletters. This is because newsletters, by their very nature, tend to look exactly like junk mail. If you receive regular email from coworkers, you would also want to include the company email address in the white list as well, ie: @mycompany.com. This way, anyone who sends email from "mycompany.com" will get through.

Installing Junkanoo
Simply run the install program.
There is one main file which is loaded into the Junkanoo directory. When the program is first run, a few more files are automatically created. Nothing is written to the Windows System directories or the Windows registry during installation. To remove the program, simply delete the Junkanoo directory, or run the uninstall program.

Configuring Junkanoo
To start using Junkanoo, you have to supply information to at least one POP3 email account. That's all you need to get going right away. As you use the program, configure the other options to suit your particular needs. Initially, do not set Junkanoo to automatically delete junk mail. You should not set this option until you are comfortable that Junkanoo is capturing only junk mail.

Additional Dictionaries
Junkanoo comes standard with a powerful English dictionary. The full featured spelling check component that gives a professional look and feel which in some ways exceeds the functionality of several spelling check engines residing in commercial word processors.

Dictionaries are also available in other languages. Download spellcheck dictionaries.

Great product. One function missing: export/import of account settings, vary handy for implementation on a new computer.

Thanks.

Hi, Junanoo is a great Program, but I'd love to see a log of some kind with details of which filter(s)/expressions caused a mail to be identified as good or bad, so I can troubleshoot?

Thanks!

Kristian
