REVIEW:

This software is a product of www.coffeecup.com. Like many other anti-spam software, CoffeeCup can block entire countries from sending you unwanted email, blacklists email addresses and complete domains and at the same time creates friendly email list to protect wanted emails. It can import friendly addresses from Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, or any .txt file. You can create your own word filters to stop bad email and it will check multiple email addresses. The biggest feature is that it will stop viruses in emails and their attachments before they get into your inbox. If you already have an anti-virus program on your computer, you may have to disable it in order for the internal anti-virus program of the CoffeeCup Spam Blocker to do its job. Downloaded emails go to a special folder first for the user to review and decide whether to accept them or not, then it sends the accepted emails onto your email account.

Personally, this reviewer finds the product acceptable but prefers to use Spam Inspector by Giant Company (see other review).
