recommendation needed: challenge-response email system

Cheap would be nice.

Effective would be even better.

Reliable would be the highest priority (i.e., no down-time).


Anybody using anything they like?


Also, if my ISP has a web interface that I use when I'm away from home, how would that work with a C-R system?

Thanks.

www.qurb.com looks pretty nice - all runs on your computer, so would be reliable, only $30 (no per/month, etc.). As for a web interface, this would not work.

I would second QURB

EXCELLENT program that has not caused me a single problem in about a year of use with Outlook 2000 and 2002

This is a client based solution, assuming your ISP uses POP mail, QURB would have 0 effect via a web client. It will only be effective when outlook is downloading your mail from the POP server to the local outlook client. Sort of functions like an Outlook Rule for lack of a better description.

Thanks for pointing out QURB. The trial version is completely uncrippled, other than reminders to buy a license.

So far, it looks like a great product.

Thanks a bunch for the QURB link. I d/l the free trial version and am fairly impressed. It doesn't say anywhere how long the trial is good for. I am prepared to purchase it after the trial if it solves my spam problems. Does anyone know from experience how long the trial period is?

7 days, but you can use it beyond the evaluation period.
