AVG8 Free and Anti-Spam

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I'm new to AVG (moving from Norton Internet Security - hardware router
firewall instead), and am looking for a bit of advice.  One of the
things I see missing in AVG8 Free is "AntiSpam" detection.  Am I
correct?  If one needs or desires AntiSpam, do you have to get another
version of AVG.  Also, what do most people use for AntiSpam?

Thanks

Max,

I use a program called Forte Agent.  I use it for email and
Newsgroups.  My ISP uses a pretty Spam filter called SpamAssassin
which does a fairly good job, but some still gets through.

Forte has a built-in bayesian spam filter

is it not working for you?

Re: AVG8 Free and Anti-Spam

I just read about it yesterday and setup the 'junk' folder for it.  I
will start moving any spam I receive to the junk folder and see how
that goes.
