Review: Cloudmark Desktop spam filtering

August 9, 2007


Earlier this year (February-ish) I switched to Vista Business. When I switched I started using Microsoft’s native spam filtering software. Microsoft’s spam filtering software downloads updates nightly, and for a while it worked fine, but recently I’ve been barraged by spam and I finally snapped. I needed a solution, so I went back to Cloudmark Desktop — the service I had been using for the past four years.

After three days back on Cloudmark I have to admit I don’t know how I survived so long without it. It’s indispensable.
