Trend Micro Anti-Spam vs Spambayes

    Win XP Pro and Outlook XP

    Because of an odd problem with a clipboard utility, I thought there was
    a conflict with Trend Micro Anti-Spam. I uninstalled it and it
    uninstalled so incompletely that I had to use jv16 to clean it out of
    the registry and then go into Outlook to find the add-on and delete it
    by hand.

    I have now installed Spambayes and therefore, am able to compare the
    two.

    There is NO comparison - Spambayes wins by a lot IMHO.

    Trend Micro slows down Outlook very badly, sometimes hangs and even when
    it's working properly, it is very very slow and really requires patience
    before it finishes its work and exits from Outlook. Trend Micro does
    have a separate method for reporting phishing. And, as noted above,
    uninstalling doesn't work very well at all.

    Spambayes integrates with Outlook completely and only slows it down a
    tiny bit. Furthermore, you can start to read your emails and Spambayes
    will continue its work in the background. It doesn't hang Outlook, and
    exits as soon as you exit Outlook.

    Spambayes does need to be trained but it learns very quickly. I chose
    to just train it "as you go" and I'm using 5 different user accounts in
    Outlook. Training is quick and efficient. There is no special means by
    which to report phishing, but is the only sort of "flaw" I can find in
    this excellent spam filter. And, it's free.
