Editorial Review

Get the e-mail you want and nothing else. McAfee's SpamKiller quickly and easily helps you stop spam from polluting your inbox using advanced rule-based and list-based filtering. SpamKiller now works with MSN Hotmail.

SpamKiller blocks specific addresses of known spammers just as other programs do, but SpamKiller goes far beyond lists. Its comprehensive preset filters also watch for subject lines and text within messages. In fact, SpamKiller can filter based on the sender's address, subject line, body text, and message header, and can even block spam based on the message's country of origin. SpamKiller comes with thousands of filters already installed, and new filters are released regularly, based on careful analysis of's spam traps. SpamKiller checks servers once a day for new filters, so your protection is always up-to-date.

SpamKiller supports MSN Hotmail, POP3, and MAPI e-mail accounts. By directly supporting multiple client-based e-mail applications (Outlook Express, Eudora, Netscape, etc.) and Web-based e-mail clients (MSN Hotmail), SpamKiller enables you to benefit from its advanced filtering without forcing you to change how you access and read your e-mail. If you're new to fighting spam, you'll love SpamKiller's filter wizard, which lets you create new filters based on spam messages you've received. Simply choose the part of the message you want to filter on, and SpamKiller does the rest.

Spam e-mail is automatically placed into SpamKiller's Killed Mail folder so your inbox remains uncluttered and free of spam; it is held in quarantine and erased automatically after 30 days. If for some reason a legitimate e-mail is flagged as spam, you can easily recover in one quick step. To make things even easier, SpamKiller can automatically import legitimate contacts' e-mail addresses into its friends list, ensuring that their messages aren't mistaken for spam. You may also add new friends, newsletters, or complete domains to the friends list at any time.

SpamKiller does more than just eliminate spam. It's also an e-mail monitor that can check and filter e-mail from multiple e-mail accounts. Monitor and filter your home e-mail from work or your work e-mail from home. And SpamKiller can alert you when new e-mail has arrived.

If you want to fight back, SpamKiller makes it easy to send complaints. Send automatic or manual complaints, make your e-mail address look invalid to spammers, and much more. SpamKiller automatically finds and suggests the relevant e-mail addresses in both headers and text, so complaining to spammers, Web site hosts, ISPs, or anybody else just takes a few mouse clicks. The result: more spammers have their accounts cancelled.
