A Quick Look at Junk Spy 2.01

by Gary Wong

Junk Spy version 2.01 was released July 9, 2002. For version 2 users, it is a free upgrade. If you are upgrading from version 1, the price is $49; if you are buying it for the first time, it's $59.

As its slogan says, "Junk Spy zaps spam." Tony Butka wrote a review of Junk Spy last year which still applies; you can view it at http://www.scoug.com/os24u/2001/scoug010.junkspy.html And, in May, Junk Spy won an Editor's Choice award for anti-spam tools from PC Magazine.

Several problems were corrected by this new version (including their automatic detection database update process), and new detectors and clues were added. I'm especially happy with the one that scans the subject line for spaces between the end of the subject title and a random string of gibberish at the end.

Installation is easy:

  1. Download the new version from http://www.junkspy.com/currentversion/currentversion.html
  2. Unzip it to a temporary directory.
  3. If you have Junk Spy currently running, close it prior to updating.
  4. From the temporary directory, run INSTALL.EXE. It will then update your current version, keeping your settings intact.
  5. Start Junk Spy and continue retrieving your e-mail.

On OS/2, Junk Spy works with MR/2 ICE, Netscape 2.02/4.04/4.61, PMMail, Polarbar Mailer, or Post Road Mailer. (It's not documented, but should work with Mozilla.) There is also a generic users' guide for other e-mail programs that run on OS/2.


Junk Spy is from Sundial Systems. If you are upgrading from version 1.0 or buying Junk Spy for the first time, you can download and purchase Junk Spy at http://www.junkspy.com/.
