SPAMfighter
Block spam automatically

It's hard to believe, but studies consistently show that more than 95% of emails are spam, a rising tide of junk messages that carries phishing scams, viruses, links to malicious sites, and more. This doesn't just waste time and internet bandwidth, it's potentially very dangerous, and every PC user needs a spam filter to help keep them safe.

Getting yourself protected doesn't have to be difficult, though. Install SPAMfighter and it'll immediately integrate with Outlook (2000 through 2019), Outlook Express (5.5 or later), Windows Mail or Mozilla Thunderbird 3 or higher. It'll then check new messages as they arrive, and any that are identified as junk will automatically be moved to the spam folder.

SPAMfighter uses sophisticated technology to separate the spam emails from your regular messages, and so, for example, it can even recognise spam sent as a picture. It'll also automatically import your address book into a whitelist of addresses that it knows are good, and emails from these people will never be marked as spam.

No spam filter can guarantee 100% accuracy, though, and occasionally the program will make mistakes. Fortunately, these are easily fixed. If SPAMfighter lets a spam email through, then highlighting it and clicking the Block button will move it to the Spam folder, while legitimate emails that have been misidentified as spam can be restored to your Inbox by clicking Unblock.

The program first installs as a 30-day trial version of SPAMfighter Pro. This can be used in businesses, is able to block emails in the languages you specify and allows unlimited entries in your blacklist and whitelist.

If you don't buy a licence, then at the end of the trial the program will automatically downgrade to SPAMfighter Standard. This is free, but only for personal use; you're allowed a maximum of 100 entries in your whitelist; and all your outgoing emails will have a "Protected by SPAMfighter" footer added.

Verdict:

SPAMfighter blocks one or two more legitimate emails than we'd like, but overall it offers good protection, and is probably the best free spam filter around

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
