Projects / SPASTIC


SPASTIC is an easy-to-use, powerful set of email filters to deal with Unsolicited Commercial E-mail (UCE), a.k.a. spam, using procmail. Some of its features are filtering based on header and/or body contents, predefined sets of filters to get started quickly, a whitelist to bypass filters, options on where to send spam, and an optional script to rotate the spam file periodically.
