JoeEmail - 0.9.107
Step By Step
How It Works
Hi, I am Joe and I'm tired of Spam. One day not too long ago I read a great article about an interesting method for filtering spam. It inspired me and I started working on JoeEmail.
JoeEmail is a Windows email reader intended to assist the user with eliminating Spam by using statistical methods; Bayes' Rule in particular. (See How It Works below for details.) In it's current beta state (0.9.x) JoeEmail is a fairly simple email client. You may want to continue to use your existing email client. Currently I've got all the basic functionality I need to survive working in JoeEmail, I'm using my old client less and less all the time.
As of version 0.9.107, this iteration of JoeEmail is at the end of it's development cycle. It has been a great proof of concept, and I will continue to use it as my primary email client, but it is having some troubles scaling to handle large amounts of mail storage and other issues. These are design flaws and have to be corrected from the ground floor. Additionally, making an email client was too big a bite- to be as effective as possible JoeEmail must allow users to use whatever client they wish- which means implementing a POP3 Server component. Anyway, I am beginning the design process for the next go-around. Keep monitoring this project for updates- but don't hold your breath.

JoeEmail is my primary email client though you may find that it does not have the features you would like. Next version will allow you to use your existing client but still have the proven benefits of probability-based spam filtering.
