It features an object-oriented specification language, easy to use C++ and Java mappings, a highly efficient protocol (including protocol compression), asynchronous method invocation and dispatch, dynamic transport plug-ins, TCP/IP and UDP/IP support, SSL-based security, a firewall solution, and much more.
Spamato is an extensible spam filter system. It is available as an add-on for Outlook, an extension for Thunderbird and Mozilla Mail, and a stand-alone proxy component. It provides a Bayesian filter, a rule-based filter, a Java implementation of Razor (Ephemeral and Whiplash), a filter that queries domains on Google, a collaborative domain, and a collaborative hash-based filter. Graphical statistics explain the efficiency of each filter as well as the overall effectiveness of the whole system.
