Due to an installation bug, some of you might be experiencing problems. Please read this page for the solutions:
My apology for the inconvenience.
This version fixed an installation issue for users upgrading from 1.5.8 or earlier. If everything has worked for you, you don't need to upgrade to this version.
This version is feature-packed: automatic balanced training for SpamBayes, make/revert corrections right from Mail.app, set SpamBayes ham/spam cutoff values, color-coded Log to let you know what emails have been used for training, and many more useful GUI enhancements and dead bugs! Enjoy!
Now ladies and gentlemen, the biggest, baddest client-side spam filter... JunkMatcher + SpamBayes!
This version adds the ability to check for new version of JunkMatcher plus a bugfix for checking for pattern updates. Enjoy!
But don't you worry. Read the following for this new release and enjoy!
A new "Pattern Delta" window for installing factory version of patterns, plus lots of fixes and enhancements. Bon Apptit!
This version fixes several subtle but serious bugs. Please read the release notes of 1.5.4 for the useful new features introduced there.
JunkMatcher 1.5.4 added a new property test to detect phishing URLs, new option to install updated factory version of patterns, and many GUI improvements and bug fixes. Enjoy!
... and a couple bug fixes and improvements. Enjoy!
This version adds only Tiger compatibility - it should run on both OS X 10.3.x (Panther) and 10.4.x (Tiger). No additional feature was added.
Well good news is Mail.app doesn't seem to have big changes in terms of the internal APIs. The (not-so-)bad news is plist files are now in binary - this means "Reinstall Mail rules" in JunkMatcher won't work.
Since I personally haven't upgraded, so I'm changing code and asking beta testers to run it for me. I'll post update as soon as I can (it's also the end of semester!).
* Emails containing character '\0' (ASCII code 0) are considered
"malformed" now, and will be thrown away without checking. There was
an exploit a while ago using this in HTML
* When adding/updating/testing a pattern, JunkMatcher will now
complain if the pattern contains a newline character (you still can
match a newline character using pattern "\n" - it's just that every
pattern has to be on one line).... read more
Now featuring a News page
and a Howto guide!
A total rewrite of JunkMatcher - better, faster, more stable...!
Release notes are available at:
Version 1.5 is a total rewrite. There are some screenshots and a short movie here:
If you are interested in beta testing it, please sign up the beta mailing list. Thanks!
This version restores the full SpamCop reporting functionality, and has some UI enhancements to the JunkMatcher Central app. Enjoy!
Again another interim release: this fixed a problem when certain bad site can disrupt the collection process, and the reporting function using free SpamCop account should work again now.
This is an interim release before the next major update - just bug fixes. Enjoy!
New version supports Fast User Switching and has several important fixes (including one introduced by Security Update 2004-06-07). Enjoy!

Please also send me a brief note telling me your full name - so I can be sure no spammer gets inside. Thank you.
This version brings huge performance and stability improvement. Make sure you read Changelog.rtf in the package (especially now all AppleScripts are eliminated from the back-end).
Also a mailing list for beta testers is now created. Please join the list if you want to test the future versions. JunkMatcher also accepts donation now.
Kudos to all beta testers that helped squash the bugs!
The next version of JM, 1.17, has many important back-end changes (including eliminating all AppleScripts). This version is MUCH faster (more than 20x) and should fix a few problems plaguing the earlier versions (like old emails sitting in inbox are filtered over and over again).
Please send me emails if you want to beta test the version - I want to make sure things work as expected.
This is the first release after migrating to Sourceforge - enjoy!
