Introduction

Pyzor is a collaborative, networked system to detect and block spam using digests of messages (read more). The latest version is 0.6 - the older versions are also available.

Since the entire system is released under the GPL, people are free to host their own independent servers. There is, however, a well-maintained and actively used public server available (courtesy of SpamExperts) at public.pyzor.org:24441.

Pyzor is an free and open-source project, belonging to the community. We welcome patches, bug reports, and suggestions for improvements, as well as discussion about the project. Unfortunately, to prevent abuse of this site, you need to log in to SourceForge? to create or modify tickets, as well as edit this wiki - a SourceForge account is free, or you can use any OpenID provider to log in. Please add any tips, 'how to's, or other documentation that you feel other users would benefit from. We strongly encourage all users to subscribe to the pyzor-announce list, where information about new releases and other important information will be posted.

Much of the development and hosting of Pyzor is currently sponsored by SpamExperts;
