    Dear Paul. I can see you’re already in touch with one of my colleagues, who’s confirmed that you can re-install the key you’ve already paid for. Best regards, Mie – SPAMfighter

    I’ve been using the free version for a few years. Within the past year, I have been getting a lot of Spam that I keep clicking on “Block”. However, I still get the same Spam and more in my Inbox, and I repeat the same process only to have these Spam in my Inbox–sometimes multiplies of the same Spam.

    I’m on the verge of purchasing Spamfighter Pro, but my heightened concern is that Spamfighter Pro will continue as the Free version–can’t deal with that. Any assurance of vast improvement in eliminating Spam from my inbox? Please be so kind as to respond and advise.

    Hi Larry,
    Thank you for your message.
    If you are thinking about upgrading SPAMfighter to a PRO version, these are some of the benefits that might help you in your situation:
    Free phone support – Call us and get help if you need it
    Unlimited Blacklist/Whitelist entries
    You can see all the list of features on the middle of the page here:

    What is the difference between Block and Blacklist in SPAMfighter?
    When you block a spam mail, SPAMfighter takes a snapshot of the contents of the email and sends it to the SPAMfighter server. If other people block the same message, it is filtered out for the rest of the community.
    Notice that you do not block the sender’s email address, but only that specific message you received. The reason for not blocking the email address is that spammers use random spam addresses all the time, so it would not help a bit.
    When you use blacklist, you do not report anything to the SPAMfighter server, it only affects your mail. When you blacklist an email address or a domain, you just stop people from those addresses from mailing you.
    It will not stop spammers, but if you receive a newsletter you can not unsubscribe from or someone you do not like keeps contacting you, you can stop them by blacklisting them.

    I hoped this helped you clarifying some of the features in our program that can help you block our spammers.
    Also – Please remember that SPAMfighter only gurantee to remove 90% of your spam mails. If you are receiving a filter rate around 90%, you can adjust the sensitivity of the SPAMfighter filter here:
    Go to “More” (In the SPAMfighter toolbar in your e-mail program) –> “Options” –> “Filter Settings”.
    Here you can set the filter to a higher or lower level of sensitivity.

    Best Regards
