SpamPal has unfortunately not been updated in a long time, and is missing out on new technologies to filter out spam. Although this version is already the latest stable version , but it was released on 24-Oct-2005
However, there is no doubt that the Spampal is still an easy-to-use and functional client-end Spam Filtering utility.
Download SpamPal you want from whichever of the following sites is closest to you:
Download SpamPal v1.594 (788k)
(includes RegExFilter v3.0 and UrlBody v0.05 plugins & setup wizard)
USA spampal.net USA spampal.com USA smithlabs.com (QWest) UK thepcfixer.co.uk
My thanks to all the kind people who are hosting these download sites.
You may also be able to obtain SpamPal from the following unofficial download sites:
If you've already installed SpamPal and just want the binary files, not the full installer with the plugins, then you can download them as a zipfile from one of these sites:
Download SpamPal v1.594 binary files only (369k)
(no plugins or installer)
USA spampal.net USA spampal.com UK thepcfixer.co.uk
Users of previous versions of SpamPal can upgrade by downloading a full version as normal, and then (after making sure that SpamPal is not running in the system tray) installing it in the directory the old version was installed in. Your configurations will not be affected.
There may be more advanced, experimental versions of SpamPal available from the Beta releases page.

Email Whitelist, Blacklist, Filtering Status, System Tray Icon, Message Tags, Logging, Access Control, DNSBLs, All plugins (RegexFilter, Bayesian, URL Body, and etc...)
What does not
In my Ubuntu 7.04~7.10 (w/o firewall installed), the Spampal's POP3 port number must be configured to 10000+, otherwise the connection won't get through.
What was not tested
99% tested, I'm running Spampal for my Thunderbird Email everyday for more than a year. It averagely filters out 1K Spam Mails for me a day!
