      Release Notes: This release was updated to catch some Microsoft Swen worms which use boundary pattern with no double quotes ("..."). If the message size is large, then more number of lines are tested, instead of the fixed 20 lines before.

        Release Notes: This version detects the Microsoft Sober worm which is about 76kB in size.

          Release Notes: The procmail rc file "popcheck.rc" is now used instead of "egrep" to match for spam. This allows users to add spam patterns from their own ~/.procmailrc. Spam headers are saved in a "spam" file for future reference.

            Release Notes: The ability to download email was removed, since it duplicated what Fetchmail already does.
